Degrees & Programs
Students have the opportunity to study visual arts either as a vocation or as a means of increasing cultural awareness. The department is keenly interested in students who choose visual art as their occupation and who want to devote themselves to the period of intensive training necessary for their profession. It is also concerned with those whose interests may be avocational rather than professional, who recognize the cultural advantages to be obtained from the study of visual art, or who find in artistic experience a high degree of personal enjoyment and satisfaction.
