The world needs artists, image-makers, and creative thinkers now more than ever, as our mediascape turns increasingly visual and complex. 

Our graduates are well equipped to solve problems artistically and use design thinking effectively.

With a strong liberal arts focus, we dedicate our attention to each student, focusing on artistic and academic excellence and a personalized career path. As part of our liberal arts philosophy, we value breadth of knowledge in the fine arts as much as newly emerging art forms and critical approaches. The School of Art’s broad-based curriculum is designed to help facilitate flexibility in student direction and foster the critical thinking and creativity that employers and graduate schools are seeking. 

 

Individually designed experiential learning is incorporated into our curriculum through valuable internships and special individual projects. Every student will create their own student-directed portfolio of work with reflective advising from faculty in the School of Art. Visiting artists and graphic designers give workshops and artist talks every semester and students have the opportunity to interact with and learn directly from them. Our faculty members are active professionals outside of the studio classrooms and share rich and varied experiences unique to artists, designers and scholars.
