  • Art History
  • Graphic & Digital Design

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

By majoring in the arts, students can take courses in a variety of art forms including photography, painting, graphic design, ceramics, sculpture and more. Students are also encouraged to engage in research in their chosen discipline and study abroad to prepare for graduate studies in the arts.
