Art Major

The Art Department is housed in Sloane Hall, a renovated nineteenth-century cavalry barracks, offering high ceilings and abundant natural light. Our curricular offerings expand and contemporize the core disciplines of artistic production—drawing, painting, sculpture, new media—along with art history surveys and seminars that illuminate those approaches. Students also have the opportunity to study ceramics, photography, and other artistic media as electives. Our goal is to further our students’ ability to produce and understand visual arts with technical skills and critical thinking. Graduating seniors exhibit a significant body of original work demonstrating these qualities in the gallery of the McCarthy Art Center as a capstone experience of the major. Students wishing to double-major in art and education should plan their course of study early and carefully to avoid scheduling conflicts. Scholarship opportunities are available to incoming and returning students through the Fairbanks-Paulin and McCarthy Scholarship programs.
