Studying Fine Arts

Through the Department of Fine Arts, students may pursue a B.A. in Art History, a B.A. in Studio Art, or a B.A. in Visual Arts and Experimental Media. We offer minors in Art History, Dance, Studio Art, and an enrichment program in Music.

The Department of Fine Arts offers a process-oriented bachelor’s degree in Art. Students work one-on-one with professional artists and art history professors. Class sizes are limited to ensure student collaboration, exceptional faculty support, and access to innovative materials and techniques. Art majors can choose from a wide range of courses from painting and sculpture to printmaking and ceramics. To support student growth, the Department maintains light-filled studios that are open to students 24 hours a day.

Fine Arts students learn valuable skills that enhance their ability to solve problems visually, to conduct research, to develop a creative process, and to hone a professional work ethic. An art degree can lead to a career in graphic design, art education, publishing, advertising, film production, art criticism, art therapy, conservation, and exhibition design.
