This program is designed to assist students in discovering their potential for creative expression in the arts and the development of a personal idiom in disciplines of their own choosing, including painting, sculpture, drawing, and printmaking. Acquisition of an effective visual vocabulary is promoted by foundational courses in two- and three-dimensional design, color, and drawing. Art historical studies provide perspective on art forms of the past.

Coupled with minors in Digital Art and Design and Museum Studies, the program prepares students for graduate study in art as well as for career opportunities in a broad spectrum of art and art-related fields.
