If only potential employers would look past their perceptions of art history graduates.
I am not sure what they think -- whether it's an easy picture-gazing degree, or whether we're lazy well-off spoilt kids or WHAT. But having already done biology and psychology, I'd say art history required the most wide-reaching thought and breadth of knowledge of all.
We have to understand the sociology, politics, economics, religion, philosophy, of every era, and the thought or belief of every artist or patron behind the paintings, objects and architecture we look at.
We have to know the names and be able to identify the dates of everything and everyone.
Not to mention the techniques and technology used in the creation of every item or building.
Our eye must be just as sharp and our writing just as critical as any scientist's. You can't make a mistake with items that are as attached to a nation's heritage as any legal manuscript, and governed by so many international guidelines.
I am quite sure that I have not exaggerated. Who else has anything to add?
