The Art program of the University of Houston is the curriculum for students who wish to combine a broad-based liberal arts education with an expanded study of contemporary studio art practices.


About the Program

Students of the Art program of the University of Houston will experience the visual arts through a variety of disciplines, approaches, and tools, gaining the skills and languages to extend the possibilities of visual expression. The study of art history, criticism and theory will complement studio work by providing the contexts for historical and contemporary art production.

Because it is a BA degree, students study foreign language and take a variety of courses from departments through the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. Fulfilling a minor program is a popular option and gives the student the opportunity to pursue a field of individual interest.

  • Drawing
