Undergraduate Fine Arts

 

Program Overview

The Undergraduate Fine Arts Program combines studio practices, seminar courses, and interactions with visiting artists and professionals in order to provide an open intellectual framework to foster critical awareness and independent methods of artistic research and learning.  The Fine Arts Department offers a diverse range of studio courses in the areas of animation and 3D modeling, ceramics, design, drawing and painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and video. The dynamic curriculum also provides students with the opportunity to thoroughly examine contemporary art, creative research, interactive design and public art through seminar-based instruction.

The Undergraduate Fine Arts Program offers a Fine Arts Major for students in the College of Arts and Sciences and School of Engineering, and a Fine Arts Minor for undergraduate students across the university. The Fine Arts program works in conjunction with three interdisciplinary degree programs in Cinema Studies, Digital Media Design and Visual Studies. Fine Arts courses are available to all students at the university to take as electives in order to enhance multidisciplinary learning.
