Art and Design

The Art and Design program, accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design, offers courses leading to a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts degree.

All students begin with the CORE program (Communication, Organization, Realization, Expression), covering the first two years, which produces a strong understanding of the design fundamentals and applications of traditional art media. Foundation level courses, including two-dimensional and three-dimensional design, color theory, drawing, and computer fundamentals, are designed to prepare students to begin their advanced concentration coursework in the sophomore year.
