With two distinct tracks available in Studio Art and Art History, the Art major offers something for both creators and curators. This flexible major allows you to develop analytical and technical skills, preparing you to make your own original contributions to the field. Art students admitted to the Prototype Program will have access to personal studio space on campus, as well as the opportunity to assist select faculty on special projects and exhibitions.
