Department of Art & Visual Studies


Art majors understand the power of visual communication.

From personal expression to politics to advertising, images move us, they affect us, they shape our thinking and behavior. Art majors are interested in the impact of visual communication on society, and are engaged with contemporary art and culture, media and design, and social justice. Our classes, across tracks, develop the skills to both make and understand the centrality of visual experience in our lives today, and to succeed professionally in the creative economy.
