Department and information about the department

The Art Department offers undergraduate major degree programs in art studio and art history. These disciplines are related and complementary. An understanding of art, whether it is an artistic medium such as photography or an artistic period such as the Italian Renaissance, expands and illuminates the academic liberal arts curriculum by bringing to students evidence of our most subtle, elevated and human forms of visual expression.

Besides their facility in their discipline and their experience in teaching, the Art Department faculty bring to the classroom an impressive array of experiences and expertise to share with the students.  


Information For  Undergraduates

The art studio and art history undergraduate degrees both provide the foundation for future activity in the discipline, whether it be employment for which a bachelor's degree is suitable or further advanced study at the graduate level at another institution.
