Description:This program is similar to a general liberal arts degree with an emphasis on the practice of visual art. Held in studio environments, visual art classes foster individual creative production and visual literacy in a lively atmosphere of instructor-led debate, discussion, and critique.

Visual Art involves the exploration and practice of different artistic media, in combination with developing an understanding of visual culture. In this program you will enjoy a combination of visual art practice, academics, and a broad range of elective courses, while having ample room for study in other areas of interest (including a minor or second major). Visual art courses foster individual creative production, and art history and academic electives develop visual literacy in a lively atmosphere of instructor-led debate, discussion, and critique.
