The studio art major stresses the development of experimental, reflective, and focused artistic practices that are engaged with the contemporary world. Building on the conceptual and artistic foundations provided in entry-level courses, and drawing upon the resources offered by each discipline, students develop and refine personal approaches to making art.
Majors are encouraged to study abroad during their junior year to gain first-hand exposure to great art and architecture, to work alongside students from different art programs, and to experience living in a new culture. For more detailed information, see the art studio section of the course catalog. All courses are designed to contribute in various ways to the department's learning goals and the College’s learning goals.
