The Department of Art conducts courses in both Studio Art (code ART) and Art History (code ARH). The Department offers a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Art degree and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in Art degree. Students in the B.A. program may major in either Studio Art or Art History. The Department participates in several of the College's interdisciplinary programs and also offers an interdisciplinary B.S. in Computer Graphics and Imaging (CGI) with the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. Note: All CGI courses are offered jointly by the two departments, Art and Mathematics and Computer Science (ART/CGI).

Career Opportunities: The majors in studio art and art history help students prepare for exciting futures in any number of art-related careers—digital imaging, arts management (galleries and museums), teaching, art law, museum education, and photojournalism, to name only a few. Studio Art and Art History majors are encouraged to explore these areas through internships offered by the College. See, for example, HUM 470 (Humanities Internship, 5 credits) later on in this Bulletin.
