"My experience at Miami, in the History of Art and Architecture program, was incredibly valuable in the development of my understanding, appreciation, and reverence for art and art history. In order to succeed in the arts, it is imperative that one first understand and master the academic foundation of art and its principles; the History of Art and Architecture program provided me this and so much more."
