Our curriculum is designed to empower students to take risks, to arrive at insights about society, and to understand themselves. We offer our students a rigorous grounding in the fundamentals, and we provide an excellent education in the history, practice and teaching of the visual arts. We challenge our students to exceed their preconceived limits, and we strive to produce graduates who will go forward with confidence in their skills, abilities, and potential. We also recognize the importance of technology, a force in our society with the ability to free artists, historians, and educators from the boundaries of our traditional disciplines.
