The graduate program in Art, Art History, and Design is a multidimensional program in which students engage in studio art, design, or art history—with concentrations available within each discipline. Students in the program develop visual literacy and the skills to conceptualize, fabricate, and evaluate works of art through coursework and a system of independent studies tailored to individual interests. The program aims to prepare students for professional practice as artists, designers, art history scholars, and arts educators.
