Department of Art and Art History
The Department of Art and Art History offers three programs of study: Studio Art, Art History, and Art Education.
Majors in Studio Art and Art History are chosen by students seeking an excellent foundation for a liberal arts education as well as by those aspiring to graduate study or careers in the arts or arts administration.
The Art Education Program combines coursework in Studio Art and Art History with requirements that lead to a license to teach in public schools, or work in alternative environments such as private schools or museum education.
Each program offers students the opportunity to pursue specific interests while developing an interdisciplinary understanding of the visual arts.
