The Department of Art and Art History offers an integrated program of studio and history courses, while allowing the student to tailor the major to fit her particular interests in either area. The art history focus is grounded in a choice of courses from different chronological periods of art and courses that treat thematic issues. The emphasis in the studio art focus in on a strong foundation in drawing and design. This allows the student to take a range of courses in painting, printing making, digital imaging, sculpture (or three dimensional studio) and mixed media. Both courses of study prepare majors for productive professional or academic careers.
