The Department of Fine Arts and Art History at George Washington University seeks to interweave creative expression, art theory, and history. We challenge our students to think beyond the classroom, to interpret the arts within a broader visual culture, treating the classroom as a testing ground for their ideas. The strong partnership between the Fine Arts and Art History promotes our critical approach, which is grounded in both contemporary and historical concerns.
Undergraduate and graduate students have a range of options for studying the visual and creative arts and for developing visual literacy as well as critical, analytic, and research skills. The Department offers Bachelor of Arts degrees in Fine Arts, Art History, or a combination of the two as well as a Master of Fine Arts and a Master of Arts in Art History. Several combined degrees are available as well, allowing students to pursue their Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in an accelerated program.
Corcoran students are encouraged to find their own direction within the diverse expertise included in the school. From performance-based to studio arts and historical to contemporary practices, students will learn a variety of strategies for creativity in our classrooms, through our exhibits, in our city and with our faculty.
