Welcome to the Department of Art

The Department of Fine and Performing Arts offers students the opportunity to learn to communicate ideas effectively, to develop analytical skills, to synthesize ideas, to evaluate implications of present actions against historical perspective and to develop discriminating aesthetic judgments. In its varied course offerings, the department plays a large part in fulfilling the University's mission of stimulating curiosity, communicating ideas and appreciating the creative accomplishments of the human race.
