Fink, Ganje, Gonsalez-Smith, Herbert, Jones (Chair), Jonientz, Luber, Smith and Widmer

The Art and Design Department provides opportunities for both the potential professional practitioner and the appreciator to study in the various disciplines and media of the visual arts. The broad categories are: two-dimensional (drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, and graphic design), three-dimensional (ceramics, sculpture, jewelry and metalsmithing, and fibers), digital time-based media, art history, and art education. A core of study in the foundations of the visual arts is followed by the development of skills and technical knowledge in the various media. These are prerequisite to the ultimate objective of nurturing growth in conceptual ability and creative production. The Art and Design department’s faculty are highly qualified and dedicated teachers, who are also seriously committed to professional productivity in their respective art disciplines. The Edmund Hughes Fine Arts Center provides more than 35,000 square feet for specialized studios and opportunities for work in visual arts media.

The Art and Design Department is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.

B.F.A. with Major in Visual Arts

The Bachelor of Fine Arts program in Art is offered to students with marked abilities who desire an intensive undergraduate concentration in visual art, in preparation for either a career as a professional artist, for graduate study leading to the MFA, or both. Candidates accepted for the program will be expected to maintain a high standard of excellence, demonstrate significant artistic growth, and a 3.00 grade point average in all art courses.

Candidates seeking admission to the BFA program must submit an application to the chairperson who will then schedule a portfolio presentation and personal interview for the candidate with a committee consisting of three departmental faculty members. Each student’s portfolio will be reviewed annually by departmental faculty, who will make a recommendation concerning the student’s status in the BFA program. If probation is recommended, students may apply for readmission at the completion of a full semester. Readmission will be contingent upon faculty evaluation.

Before advancement to upper-division status, all BFA candidates must participate in review and evaluation by the departmental faculty.
