Visual and Performing Arts (B.A.)

Creativity is your career

To study visual and performing arts is to learn how to transform the ordinary into something extraordinary.

The B.A. program in Visual and Performing Arts focuses on helping students acquire competency with the tools and techniques and the history and heritage of Western traditions associated with the visual arts.

Select from two concentrations

Students may select from two concentrations within the Visual and Performing Arts program – Studio Art and Game Art and Design.

  • The Visual Art major with a concentration in Studio Art combines a study of art history with dynamic and rigorous hands-on production experience in media ranging from drawing, painting, sculpture, and ceramics.
  • In the Game Art and Design major, students will learn the techniques and processes to construct 2D and 3D art assets to be used in the creation of computer games. Students will learn to model, sculpt, and texture both in traditional and electronic art media from a beginning to an advanced level.

Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time

Students learn to demonstrate the skills required to produce creative works at a professional level and to reflect upon and assess the characteristics and merits of their own work and the creative work of others.
