Program Director

Dr. Joy Kunz teaches Art History at SBCC and

SBCC Study Abroad programs. Dr. Kunz has
traveled extensively in Europe, Africa, and South
America. She earned a degree in Literature from
California Lutheran University, a Master's degree in
Renaissance Art History from Saint Louis University,
and a Ph.D. from the University of California Santa

experience of living in Paris.
