Cultivating Creative Ideas at Bloomsburg University
Dr. Christine Sperling, Chairperson and Professor of Art History
The Department of Art and Art History
provides an intellectual and creative environment
in which students reach their potential as emerging
artists and art historians. Our program cultivates
in each student a considered and articulated
understanding of the visual arts within the context
of history and contemporary culture. We provide
a broad foundation of experiences that embrace
traditional practices as well as current approaches
to the study of art. Students graduate from our
program socially engaged, aesthetically conversant
and devoted to a life in the visual arts.

Enriching Visual Creativity
The Department of Art and Art History is NASAD accredited and serves the region by offering two related and complementary Bachelor of Art degrees. Students are provided a broad foundation with a strong background in art history and solid technical skills integrating traditional media with digital technologies.
Our goal is to prepare
students by example, instruction, and guidance in
the skills and knowledge required to find creative
solutions beyond the classroom and in all aspects
of their lives and culture.
