Academics


261488_468953693148122_1800234721_nOne of the strengths of the curriculum for the visual arts degree programs is the ability to incorporate the timeless principles of design with the changes in technology and the new career possibilities. This is made possible by adhering to the philosophy and understanding that education precedes design. This is important and helps the Division of Art  prepare students for the jobs of today and the jobs of tomorrow. We believe that creativity is an important component that helps students adapt and adjust to a rapidly changing field.

Internships
