The goals of the Department of Art are (1) to ensure the cultivation of intellectual curiosity and critical thinking; (2) to encourage the acquisition of the prerequisite knowledge, attitudes, and skills for one’s vocation; (3) to ensure that students meet the requirements of accrediting agencies and professional groups; and (4) to offer programs that provide high returns on college investments.

The Department of Art General Program embraces three areas of concentration: Visual Communications, Studio, and Art Studies.

The Visual Communications Concentration prepares the student for fields of specialization in graphic design, advertising, and other associated areas of commercial communication.  Students investigate the use of art as a means of communication in these specialized areas.

The Studio Concentration is designed for the student who wishes to concentrate in one of the following disciplines: painting and drawing, printmaking, sculpture, or ceramics.  Students in this program are encouraged to continue to study at the graduate level.

Art Studies Concentration is focused on the practice and theory of art, which provides the foundation for students’ independent exploration and artistic development.
