Welcome to the Graduate Art Program
The graduate major in Art stresses intellectual curiosity, self-discipline, and technical proficiency. With course work in painting, printmaking, photography, digital imaging, sculpture, or ceramics, the art studio student is directed to become a mature artist in command of the medium and capable of expressing an individual view. Students are encouraged to develop perception and imagination, combined with an awareness of visual elements, principles of design, artistic statement, and criticism.
The graduate Art program enables students either to become practicing artists or to achieve a level of scholarship that can help them to be art experts or professional educators. With a growing interest and expanding use of the arts in contemporary life, the employment outlook for art majors continues to be promising.
Classes in art history treat art objects as historical documents related in subject, style, technique, and material to other works of art and interpret their context and purpose. Courses range from contemporary international and regional artistic expressions to those of ancient America, Africa, and Asia. Students with an interest in art history elect a specific subject area.
