About

The Art History program of Rockford University specializes in educating students in the various modes of visual communication. It is the belief of the department that understanding visual means of expression, or being visually literate, is a fundamental component of a liberal arts education on par with written and verbal learning.

Overview

The study in the Art History program of Rockford University encourages students to realize that visual, written, and verbal means of communication are often inextricably bound.

The Art and Art History department, as its name implies, incorporates two distinct yet profoundly complimentary and dependent units. One, the studio arts, is primarily devoted to instruction in the making of works of art. The other, art history, is primarily devoted to the historical understanding and current interpretation of traditional works of art and visual culture. In its studio courses, the department endeavors to support the individual, expressive and technical needs of students as they explore various media and seek to reconcile ideas with their final visualization. In its art history courses, the department seeks to provide students with an overall grounding in the history and theory of world art and visual culture.
