For the thirteenth year in a row, WWU Art History students traveled to Seattle to present their research at the University of Washington Undergraduate Research Symposium. Students apply to the Symposium by submitting an abstract via a faculty mentor who can speak to the quality of the research; this includes students working on faculty research, as well as students working on their own research under the supervision of faculty. All abstracts are reviewed by a committee comprised of University of Washington faculty, advanced undergraduates, and staff.
All of our Art History professors hold Ph.D.'s - and they teach all the classes themselves - which is one of the strengths of an undergraduate-focused institution like Western. The students were mentored by WWU Art History faculty members Dr. Javier Berzal de Dios, Dr. Monique Kerman, and Dr. Barbara Miller. Dr. Miller has also served as a panelist at the Symposium for a number of years.
