The Department of Art offers innovative programs for students interested in the visual arts. Degrees are offered in studio art, photography, graphic design, and computer animation. The department has over 30,000 square feet of space devoted to studios, laboratories, lecture halls, and galleries. Studios in painting, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, and photography maintain the best tools available for students to develop skills and express ideas.

Students wishing to pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Computer Animation, Graphic Design, Photography, or Studio Art are required to participate in W.A.S.H. (Workshop in Art History and Studio). WASH is a nine credit hour foundation program that includes studio and lecture components. Other core art courses required of all BFA’s include Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, and Time Based classes. After passing a BFA Portfolio review in their sophomore year, students take advanced courses to develop expertise in the BFA program of their choice.
