In this program, you will study Renaissance art, impressionism, modern art, and art from other cultures.

Graphic Arts

This 18-credit graphic arts program, available either as a minor or as a certificate, will give you a strong foundation in fine arts with an array of classes in graphic design.

You will become familiar with the field of graphic design, developing basic competency in design and typography. You will learn to work in the Macintosh operating system to create an original portfolio of work using Adobe Creative Suite programs such as PhotoShop and Illustrator.

Studio Fine Arts

The 18-credit minor in studio fine arts explores the fundamental principles of color, design, and composition through creative expression and experimentation.
