The art major offers several directions for the student who has an interest and talent in the visual arts. Individualized advising helps the student choose a major with one of the following two emphases:

  1. Fine arts which prepares students for careers in gallery/museum or arts administration, or for graduate work in studio art, commercial art, art therapy, or art history.
  2. Art education which prepares students for K-12 teaching certification.

All majors are encouraged to attend art exhibition openings and/or workshops and field trips sponsored or approved by the art faculty. A Sophomore Review is required of all students who declare an Art Major by their Sophomore year. Transfer students and students who declare the major later are encouraged to participate in the Sophomore Reveiw as Juniors. Art Majors are also required to complete a senior show and career portfolio to be approved by the art faculty.

  1. Mastery of skills in his/her chosen area of emphasis.
