All studio and scholarly divisions – 2D Studies, 3D & Extended Media, Photography, Illustration+Design, Art History, and Art & Visual Culture Education – are essential to the whole of the School, adding particular elements that serve to invigorate our mission, reputation, and spirit as we move forward into an exciting and promising future.


The School of Art is devoted to promoting the transformational power of art in all aspects of life.


The School of Art is committed to preparing students for careers in Studio Art, Art History, and Art and Visual Culture Education in an increasingly diverse and technological world. The School of Art provides distinguished undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral instruction that emphasizes critical thinking in all aspects of learning.
