Each year the Department of Art and Art History hosts several art history symposium events in the spring quarter.
Santa Clara students participate in several exhibitions throughout the year, the Studio Art Senior Exhibition and the Student Juried Art Exhibition. In addition, the members of the Santa Clara Student Art League participate in a SCUSAL Exhibition in the Fall quarter.
The Department of Art and Art History offers two types of scholarships: The Art and Art History Summer Scholarship and the Mary F. and Gerald P. Scholarship.
The Art and Art History Summer Scholarship grants up to four students $250 each to attend an art-related or art history-related college-level educational program over the summer. The Mary F. and Gerald P. Scholarship is a merit scholarship, not need-based, and the recipient is judged upon outstanding work in a studio class. As the recipient of this scholarship, the funds will be automatically applied towards the student's tuition and/or student loans.
