a rich and diverse range of investigations across the disciplines
of art making and art history. Integrating extensive liberal
arts offerings with a broad studio experience, majors choose
to balance exploration with focus in a particular area as
preparation for graduate school or future work in an art-related
field. Critical thinking, imaginative problem solving, and
self-reflective evaluation are key components in the development
of the theoretical and technical aspects of art making. Through
art courses students gain competency in visual language,
an increasingly important skill in contemporary culture.
Visual and verbal analytical and organizational skills learned
in the studio apply to thoughtful practice in many arenas
of our complex world.
