Our Mission
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.
