Program Description

The program of study in Studio Art provides opportunities for broad artistic and intellectual development of the University body, and nurtures and supports the quality education of those who have chosen fine arts as a professional goal either as producing artists or as teachers.

The faculty is committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service to the university and the community, and strives to provide a learning environment which develops the artistic spirit and professionalism.  The studio-oriented program leads to study at the graduate level or professional employment.

Students must complete a foundation portfolio review designed to demonstrate competencies in foundations; therefore, all foundation courses should be completed by December of the sophomore year. Before graduating from the studio track, seniors are required to present acceptable exhibitions of work from their areas of concentration and undergo a critique of that exhibition by faculty.​
