The Fine Arts program introduces students to a complex and important area of human culture. In art history courses, they learn how to evaluate works aesthetically and to comprehend and recognize influences of contributing forces (physical, political, intellectual, spiritual) on artists and the viewing public. In studio courses, the creative experience is offered and concerns of artistic activity are made more vivid. As Fine Arts majors, students concentrate in either Studio Art or Art History. Minors are offered in Studio Art, Art History, and Archaeology.
