Introduction

Accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design since 1974, the Department of Art offers programs that include: the scholarly fields of art history, theory, analysis and criticism; the studio fields of ceramics, crafts (including jewelry, woodworking and metalsmithing), creative photography, drawing and painting (including printmaking), entertainment arts and animation, exhibition design, glass, graphic design, illustration, and sculpture; and the single subject teaching field of art education.

Curricular plans for the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Fine Arts have been developed to meet the individual needs and interests of students in art.

Arts programs provide a comprehensive learning environment, which contributes conceptually and technically to the development of the art historian, the visual artist and the art teacher. Specifically, the programs provide opportunities for students to: (1) develop a knowledge and understanding of fundamental visual experience and concepts basic to many forms and fields of art; (2) develop a critical appreciation of historical and contemporary art forms as they relate to individual and social values; (3) creatively express personal experience and thought with visual skill and clarity; (4) develop knowledge and skills necessary to pursue graduate studies in visual arts, or to teach art; and (5) develop the understanding and expertise applicable to professional practice.
