The Fine Arts program introduces students to a complex and important
area of human culture. In art history courses, they learn how to
evaluate works aesthetically and to comprehend and recognize influences
of contributing forces (physical, political, intellectual, spiritual) on
artists and the viewing public. In studio courses, the creative
experience is offered and concerns of artistic activity are made more
vivid. As Fine Arts majors, students concentrate in either Studio Art or
Art History. Minors are offered in Studio Art, Art History, and
Archaeology. All students should plan their program of study in
consultation with the Fine Arts program chair. Courses may include field
trips to museums and galleries in nearby cities.
Internships are encouraged for all students in the major or minor,
especially those planning careers in museums, galleries, educational or
cultural institutions, commercial art or arts administration. The
program benefits from several campus resources including the Bogigian
Art Gallery and the Hunnicutt Classics Collection. An Artist in
Residency program helps to expose students to visual and performing
artists. These resources are described under the section on Academic
Courses in related disciplines may be recommended for academic
enrichment or career goals. The following courses may be credited
towards the Art History requirement: CLS 215 Women in Antiquity and CLS
270 Topics in Classical Civilization.
