Students in our programs study visual art as practice-based creative research. We offer courses that develop artistic self-sufficiency and that prepare students for careers in education, the community, and in museums.  Courses also develop skills in the critical analysis of art objects and visual culture in a variety of historical, geopolitical, and cultural contexts. Our graduates are equipped with the overlapping technical, research and interpretive skills that professional art practices demand.
