The Department of Art, Media, and Design (AMD) offers a general
curriculum which identifies and promotes continuing contact with the
enduring values of our artistic heritage and the application of these
values to the future. The educational aim of the department is to
provide, through individualized instruction, a broad foundation in art
practice. The curriculum emphasizes fundamental artistic
concepts through problem solving and experimentation.
Students can take advantage of the small class sizes and personalized
instruction from studio and media art faculty. Among area universities,
the department now boasts two of the finest digital computer
laboratories dedicated solely to studio, media, and graphic art. Our newly
renovated facility features two darkrooms, two computer digital
laboratories, a teaching exhibition space, wood and metal sculpture
studios, and dedicated studios for video, photography, digital imaging,
sculpture, printmaking, painting and drawing.
