Candace Livingston

Associate Professor of Art History

Bachelor of Arts, Baylor University, Classics
Master of Arts, Tulane University, Art History
Doctor of Philosophy, University of Southern California, Art History

The small class sizes mean I get to know each of my students individually and that our conversations about course material and their educational experience often continue outside the classroom. My experience as an undergraduate at a Baptist institution, Baylor, was tremendously influential on my decision to teach at another Baptist university. The education I received was intellectually rigorous but the environment was supportive, and I hope I am successful in fostering a similar environment in my own classrooms.

Travel and adventure, reading, collecting vintage books, playing the piano and saxophone

I have traveled to 33 countries on four continents and have seen six of the seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

I was a contestant on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire in 2010. Yes, I won some cash!

My intro-level classes are lecture-based, although I like to keep a dialogue going with the students by asking questions throughout. Upper-level classes are more focused and involve significant amounts of discussion and debate. I especially enjoy organizing field trips when possible, to visit major museums and sites in the Greenville area and in Atlanta.
