Overview

Small class sizes with a friendly collegiate spirit, award-winning instructors who share extensive and interdisciplinary connections in the field, ample studio space, and a breathtaking natural environment in which to work are major strengths of our program.

Our mission is to help art history and fine arts students, as well as students from other disciplines, develop critical and interdisciplinary frameworks to question how the fields of art and visual and material culture relate to disparate social contexts that shape our lives. How do the arts of the past help us understand our future? How are contemporary artists shaped by the cultural treasures inherited from the past? Why are visual art and material culture central to issues of social development and personal advancement in many different cultures around the world? How can we prepare for the experience of interacting with another culture through travel and tourism? These and other questions form the basis of our ongoing discovery of the often-unexpected diversity of human voices in art history and visual studies.
