About Art & Art History
The Art & Art History program offers three majors and minors:

Students are presented the opportunity to display their artwork at the Pool Art Center or the C-Street Gallery, both of which are open to the public during the monthly Art Walk. Those interested in the arts can pursue their interests with organizations including the Ceramics Club, Student Advocates for the Arts, and the Synthesis Art Community.
