Programs in Department of Studio Arts provide students with a dynamic environment for students to develop a contemporary art practice where studio production is central. Students study multiple historical and intellectual traditions within the context of contemporary art issues, ideas and practices. Playing a pivotal role in one of North America’s largest and most respected schools for fine arts study, studio arts has always made cross-discipinarity a foundational element of the learning process.
