Foundation Coursework

The Art core curriculum is a comprehensive foundation program for all art programs. The core is comprised of five fundamental studio courses, three Art History courses, and a sophomore capstone course for each area program.

The required foundation courses introduce students to the investigation of visual art practices and theories. These courses prepare students for the study of art by providing an intellectual framework that supports all the degree programs. Students are exposed to a wide range of media and processes where they are able to explore the vocabulary of the visual language in 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional projects.
