What you’ll learn

Studio Arts programs blend the instruction of classical techniques with new technologies. The department's Undergraduate Programs feature nine distinct majors, each providing a distinct path to a BFA.

At the graduate level, the MFA in Studio Arts Program provides a challenging and supportive environment in which students are engaged in intensive studio production as they work closely with faculty in their chosen area of concentration. Recognizing the importance of critical inquiry, seminar courses are an important aspect of the program that enable students to develop their understanding of conceptual, historical and theoretical subjects.
