Studio Art

The Studio Art program provides an introduction to the visual arts with study and studio practice in color, two-dimensional design, three-dimensional design and drawing through the Foundations Program. These basic, comprehensive, introductory courses are preparatory for further study in the department's studio disciplines. For the undergraduate student wishing to major in studio art, the program provides in-depth study in studio specialties in 2-D studios (drawing, photography, printmaking and painting), 3-D studios (ceramics, fibers, glass, and sculpture), Communication Art & Design and Interior Architecture. Courses are also offered that lead to certification in art education. The Department of Fine Arts offers undergraduates the choice of  B.A. or B.F.A. degrees in studio art.


Art History

The Art History program offers courses that introduce students to the history and appreciation of the visual arts. An introductory course explores fundamental elements of design and the potential of the visual media through the study of major works of art around the world and in the region. For the undergraduate wishing to major in art history the program provides in-depth study in Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, Nineteenth and Twentieth Century, Modern and Contemporary Western art and architecture, as well as in Pan-African (African and African-American) art.
