For Current Students

We are committed to helping students achieve the visual literacy that is essential to negotiating the world today. We prepare students to pursue advanced degrees in graduate school; for careers as visual artists or in gallery, museum, and arts administration; and for a life enriched by the visual arts.

Our studio art program is supported by outstanding facilities and faculty. Our artists have a particular commitment to craft and the skills to introduce students to the key critical questions and themes in artistic practice today.  Our art history program exposes students to a wide variety of art from East Asian, European, and Latin-American cultures, from the ancient world to the present day.  Faculty offer rigorous introductions, advanced courses in specific art-historical periods, and thematic seminars that consider art in the context of ideas rather than simply historical chronology.
