The Department of
Art offers two degree programs, a BS Ed in art education for students who wish
to pursue a career in teaching art and a BA in art, which provides students
with options in studio areas, such as ceramics, design, illustration, painting,
photography, printmaking, and sculpture, as well as art history. Study options
also exist in new media arts, mural painting, and other new genres. Both
conceptual and technical excellence is stressed within a curriculum that
encourages diverse forms of creative expression. Study plans are developed on
an individual basis consistent with the goals identified by the student and advisor.
This allows students the pursuit of diverse interests that match the
individual. Recent graduates have begun successful careers as art teachers, and
practicing fine and commercial artists. Graduates from our BA program have been
accepted in nationally known MFA programs, and our BS in art education alumni
are prominent art education leaders throughout the state.
The department houses the Samuel S.
T. Chen Fine Arts Center, a gallery exhibiting works by nationally and
internationally recognized artists, and providing a venue for student and
faculty exhibits. The gallery also provides opportunities to study curatorship,
leading to career possibilities in museum studies. Options abound for
internships with business and industry, community-based organizations, museums,
galleries, and schools.
