Department of Visual & Performing Arts

painting studentThe Department of Visual and Performing Arts offers concentrations in art, music and theatre, as well as special programs such as undergraduate teacher certification in Art Education and graduate programs in Art and Music Education.

Students will explore theory and history of the arts and gain "hands-on" experience in their craft. With experiential learning, students explore personal expression of their art and learn to relate that to historical and theoretical perspectives.

Department faculty are happy to help with academic and career advising. Please contact a specific faculty member or the department office if you have questions.
