The Department of Art seeks to encourage personal and creative growth and to prepare the student for a career in the visual arts. The programs of study offer aesthetic, scholarly, historical and technical instruction. Visual art processes, application, and methods are practiced in studio courses, leading to professional preparedness in the visual arts or design. Exploration of interdisciplinary possibilities and new technologies is encouraged. It is the goal of each program of study and specialization to guide students toward understanding of the creation and analysis of visual art and design. A degree in art can prepare students for a graduate program in art and for careers in art education, in graphic design, as a practicing artist, and in related fields including arts management, art therapy and museumology.
