The Art, Printmaking Concentration at Salem State University provides an in depth experience in fine art printmaking. Upon graduation, the student may either establish a studio or continue to study at the graduate level. 


The undergraduate Art, Printmaking Concentration major programs are a based on a Liberal Arts curriculum structured to provide an environment for an in-depth experience in areas including fine arts, design, education, and art history with an emphasis on studio production. Students develop their creativity through discovery, observation, and analysis. The Art + Design department courses encourage an appreciation for the social, cultural, ethnic, and environmental complexities of our community and the world. Emphasis is placed on the plurality within and among cultures, and the richness in diversity of individuals and groups.

Courses in art and design guide students to develop their abilities to express ideas, messages, and concepts through visual and verbal means. Factors that play a role in visual expression and problem solving include individual experiences, critiques of society, and balancing the use of traditional artists’ tools with today’s technology. The foundation courses serve as the basis for strengthening critique skills and methods of learning in a studio classroom environment. The concentration-specific courses allow students to focus intensely on one of eight disciplines. In the capstone courses, students build their portfolios and develop supporting documents such as resumes, artist statements, and cover letters in preparation for applying for graduate school or to work in a creative field at places such as museums, design firms, galleries, advertising agencies, photography studios, printing shops, and schools.
