Our department is a combined Art and Art History program. The curriculum offers three learning tracks: Studio Art, Art History, and New Media Art and Design. Studio students learn painting, drawing, graphic design, sculpture, video, digital photography and more while our students of art history learn how to use visual material in the analysis of society, economics, politics, and religion.

With the new media art and design (NMAD) major, students can become active participants in burgeoning new fields related to art and design. This degree helps build foundational tools to see design as a holistic and humanistic process and is a pathway to think openly and critically about the world that surrounds us.
