Liberal Arts and Sciences: Studio Art Option
The Liberal Arts and Sciences curriculum prepares a student to be an accomplished and productive human being. A liberal arts degree opens doors to the professions and to rewarding and responsible careers. Future physicians, teachers, scientists, lawyers, and businessmen, for example, develop themselves as well-rounded individuals, in addition to completing their pre- professional work. The academic experiences in liberal arts and sciences provide the foundation for later specialization, graduate study, and professional school. The option in Studio Art offers a greater degree of specialization. This option is suitable for students interested in the visual arts, art education, and a variety of other art related majors. The program gives students the opportunity to experience an assortment of hands on art courses along with the general Liberal Arts curriculum.
