Students who successfully complete the art, art education or fine arts majors will:
- engage in the creative art making process, using imagery, methods and media to express and communicate ideas, feelings, experiences and aspirations.
- understand the formal, technical and expressive aspects in visual artworks, using critical skills to describe, analyze, interpret and evaluate such works.
- understand and appreciate the historical, social and cultural contexts of the arts and artists in societies past and present, while being equipped to enter the dialogue.
