About the Program: 

National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) Accredited

The Art program provides students with the opportunity to study a wide variety of visual arts media. Together with basic instruction in drawing, design, and art history, students, under advisement, select 24 credit hours in electives in fine arts and/or design.

The Art and Design Department reserves the right to retain artwork for official purposes, such as exhibits, catalogs, or teaching aids.

Students are expected to assume the costs of materials they use in their courses. All studio courses may have an additional instructional charge for materials used in class.
