Through its many activities including student exhibitions, Visiting Artist & Scholar Lecture Series, and outreach events, the Department of Art, Art History, and Design is a hallmark of engaged and active learning. An incubator of creativity and innovation, the visual arts contribute significantly to the cultural life of our community, inspire a stewardship of our built and natural environment, internationalize our perspective on issues, broaden our framework of understanding, and increase our capacity to think beyond convention.
To best serve its students, the Department of Art, Art History, and Design is in the process of dynamically restructuring and reimagining its MFA program. As a result, we are not admitting new graduate students for the 2018-19 academic year. Please check back with us in 2018 to learn more about our exciting new MFA program.
