Art Major

Create a new perspective

You’ll gain hands-on experience in the studio, mastering concepts and skills by putting them into practice. Move from existing skills, ideas and viewpoints to new ones.

Work in all the varieties of media we have to offer – paint, draw, sculpt, photograph, design in our digital media lab, and so much more. You’ll acquire a high level of competency while discovering your own unique interests and point of view. Written assignments and research supporting work in the studio are integral elements of the art major. Field trips and visiting artist events support effective and in-depth learning.

Through art history, explore the visual arts from prehistory to the present. Study in art history combines the critical methodologies of history with the visual, physical and aesthetic qualities of art and architecture. Art history is a way to look at all of history and society from a visual and cultural perspective.
