Why Study Art?

Creative individuals offer a unique perspective on the world and often challenge us to pursue new ideas and solutions to many of the world’s problems.

  • Become part of a creative community on campus that offers support and encouragement for all of your artistic endeavors in the studio and in the classroom.
  • A degree in art and design, art history or art education allows you to spread your creative wings, but also provides a solid foundation for a host of career opportunities and post-graduate study.
  • Create and display your work as you study the artistic achievements of varied cultures, and discover the latest approaches to your craft.
  • Acquire the vocabulary and technical skills required to work independently and collaboratively in your chosen medium.
  • Build your artistic skills as you build your portfolio for a career in the arts or for graduate school.
