Program Description


The Department of Art and Art History offers programs leading to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degrees with areas of concentration in art history and/or studio art. The B.A. degree is designed for those students who wish to combine a liberal arts education with their studies in art. The department also offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree with concentrations in painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. There are B.F.A. degrees offered with an art education component and a B.F.A. degree which allows students to receive a certificate in graphic design after completing courses at nearby Sinclair Community College. These degrees are designed for students who have decided to pursue a more intense professional program in studio art. Many graduates of these programs are successful applicants to graduate schools. Because self-expression and self-learning are the ultimate goals of the program, students are largely responsible for determining the options that best meet their individual needs and interests.

In the studio area, studies begin with introductory courses in drawing, sculpture, and photography. These courses are designed for the beginning artist and guide the student’s development in the visual arts. The program helps students expand and express their knowledge and grow in self-expression by exploring the processes and language that are basic to all visual arts. Rather than follow a system of independent courses in a given medium or discipline, students investigate issues and ideas in a variety of visual modes.
