  • Why Study Fine Arts

    The Fine Arts department offers a minor as well as a full range of diverse courses, events and activities for all students. It performs a critical role in general education. Philosophically, the faculty seeks to reinforce the importance of the fine arts in forming self-definition, in developing alternative methods of communication and awareness, in undertaking unique personal challenges, and in balancing academic experience to include “hands-on” and “live” interactions. The department recognizes the importance of introducing and developing the artistic spirit in all students and of incorporating it not as a luxury but as part of the design of their lives.
