B.A. in Fine Arts

The Fine Arts program is designed to help students attain full development as visionaries in both a general arts context and within the framework of art’s history and philosophy. Students are encouraged to create a personal style and a critical approach to the solution of individual problems, by exploring two- and three-dimensional media and forms. An annual art exhibit is an integral part of the program.

By choosing suitable electives, students may prepare themselves for graduate studies or for careers in art production, scholarly research, art education, art reporting, graphic and industrial design, book illustration, theatre, or the management of art enterprises.
