Art Department

The art department offers study opportunities structured to develop in students an understanding of the meaning, both past and present, of art in society. Art majors and minors acquire comprehensive experience in use of materials and technique while gaining confidence in their ability to integrate faith, knowledge and creativity. The art major complements the Christian liberal arts experience to prepare students for teaching, professional art production and graduate studies. All department faculty members hold the terminal degree (MFA) in studio art and are actively involved in production and exhibition.

The student's experience is diversified through visiting artists, on-campus gallery exhibits and off- campus trips that give students access to cultural resources in cities throughout the northeast. The art department also offers Mayterm art history experiences every other spring in cities such as Paris, London, Munich, Berlin, Istanbul, Vienna, Budapest, Florence, Rome, Lisbon and Madrid.
