The mission of the Art Department is two-fold: 1) contribute a necessary and integral component to the mission of the University by providing opportunities for broad artistic and intellectual development of the University body; and 2) specifically nurture and support the quality education of those who have chosen fine arts as a professional goal, either as artists or teachers.

The faculty is committed to excellence in teaching, research, and service to the university and the community. The Department strives to provide a learning environment that nurtures not only the artistic spirit but also the professionalism of the prospective art teacher as well.  The studio-oriented program leads to study at the graduate level or employment. The Art Education program leads to teacher licensure in grades K-12. 

Students must complete a portfolio review designed to demonstrate competencies in foundations; therefore, all foundation courses should be completed by December of the sophomore year.

Before graduating from either program, seniors are required to present acceptable exhibitions of work from their areas of concentration and undergo a critique of that exhibition by faculty.
