Overview

Elective studio work is available in photography, graphic design and ceramics. The art program covers a broad range of approaches – from traditional fine arts techniques to the use of new and emerging technologies. 

The programme

The first year entails a very thorough and varied foundations program. This enables students with different levels of preparation in art to develop the necessary skills to be successful in the program and beyond. The study of art history is seen as necessary to intelligent studio development, as is the orienting of the student to the attitudes, philosophies and language of the contemporary art world. Both the B.A. and B.F.A. degrees require art history courses. Emphasis is placed on students developing and applying creative and innovative problem-solving strategies and demonstrating refined aesthetic knowledge and expressive skills. In areas such as digital and graphic arts where links to the applied arts industries are prevalent, students develop the skills to work with conventions essential to these fields.
