Art

Art fosters individual creativity and cultural identity. Art can be studied for its aesthetic, psychological, anthropological, historical, religious, social, and commercial significance. It can be created for expressive, therapeutic and political purposes. Students learn to appreciate, contextualize, and evaluate art as a means of visual communication. They explore different media and techniques as they develop their own talents in drawing, painting, design, sculpture, and varied crafts. As an important component of a liberal education, art promotes sensitivity, self-exploration, creativity, and multicultural awareness. Those majoring in this area may find careers in teaching; art history; painting; sculpture; illustration; publishing; advertising; art collection and appraisal; museum management; graphic design; and theatre, film, or video production.
