Welcome to the Department of Art!

We have a vibrant community of more than 200 students and a distinguished faculty passionate about teaching.  Majors in the Art Department earn B.F.A.s in the studio arts, graphic design, or digital art and B.A.s in art history or studio art.  Classes in museum studies and gallery practices are offered on a regular basis.

Whether it has to do with the creation of a painting, sculpture, drawing, photograph, or computer-generated image, or the study and critical analysis of a work of art, our courses engage the imagination and offer lifelong support as students move on to future opportunities.

In May, a program in Ireland is offered where students earn university credits. Each year we send two students to an artists’ residency program in Gatlinburg.

Student organizations include the art history club, digital media gaming club, and a graphic design club.
