Areas of Study


Art is a visual response to the human condition. An educated artistic vision includes knowledge of the history and theory of creative work, and studio experience that nurtures individual creative expression and critical thinking.

The Department's Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees prepare students as visual artists and graphic designers. The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree places a particular emphasis on studio work. The Visual Arts Bachelor of Science degrees in teacher licensure prepare students for elementary/secondary classroom teaching.

The Department of Visual Arts is a full partner with the Department of Industrial Technology in the Design Technology program.

The Department offers three exhibition spaces that present local, regional, national, and international exhibits. The gallery program also maintains two permanent collections in ceramics and prints.

Notes: All senior majors in the B.A., B.F.A., and B.S. programs must register for and present a senior exhibit on campus during their senior year. VSAR 459 Senior Exhibit/Thesis Project or Portfolio may not be taken during a student teaching or internship quarter.
