Department of Visual, Performing, and Media Arts

As a future art student with this major, you will focus on the breadth of general studies in the visual arts within the context of a liberal arts framework.

The Art major is designed to develop your visual sensitivity and technical skills through experience, to increase your ability to make workable connections between concept and media, and to gain discernment of quality in works of art.

While bringing practical, professional knowledge to the classroom, our faculty serves to encourage and challenge you to be competent in communicating visually and to develop a mature, Christ-centered worldview.
