If living a creative life and learning about the visual culture of your world interests you, then the Department of Art and Art History has a full array of courses to pique your interest and help prepare you for a career in the arts. As a nationally accredited art program with a full selection of offerings in studio, art education and art history, we invite you to participate in one of the oldest disciplines known to humankind. Our majors experience a rigorous foundation in two and three-dimensional studies, art history, as well as advanced courses using the materials and tools rooted in antiquity through the technologies of the 21st century.

In addition to our curricular offerings we also have an extensive exhibition program in the De Pree Gallery that regularly crosses cultural and historical boundaries by hosting a range of exhibitions from internationally recognized artists to showcasing our current student work. These programs continually expand the dialogue about the creative process through conversations with visiting artists, lectures, workshops, and critiques that are located at points where art and culture intersect.

If you are interested in learning more about the opportunities we have to offer, I encourage you to further explore our Website. We will be happy to assist you on your path to the richness that a life in the visual arts can provide.
