The undergraduate Studio Art program offers comprehensive study in a close-knit community for students interested in pursuing graduate study or a professional career in the visual arts. Rather than providing degrees in a single medium (such as Painting or Photography), the undergraduate program offers two degrees in Studio Art that each allows students to take courses across five areas of study: Painting & Drawing, Photography & Media, Print, Sculpture & Extended Media, and Transmedia (video / performance / digital media).
The undergraduate Art History program provides a foundation for an enduring understanding of art and prepares students for a variety of professional roles and advanced academic study. Students are exposed to a range of periods and cultures while mastering aspects of art historical research such as critical thinking, problem solving, source analysis, and effective writing.
