Welcome to the Department of Art
Welcome to the Department of Art at the University of West Florida. For more than fifty years, we have fostered independent and critical thinking in our students through the production and study of the visual arts.
The department offers two Baccalaureate programs: a Bachelor Degree (B.A.) in Art Studio which allows students to concentrate in painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, ceramics, and Art History; and a Bachelor of Fine Art (B.F.A.) in Graphic Design, Digital Art, and Studio Art (drawing, painting, sculpture ceramics, photography).Our B.A. is streamlined to accommodate double majoring and offer an Art minor in either Studio Art or Art History. Read more from Dr. David Earle, interim chair, Department of Art.
