Faculty

Pat Wasserboehr, Associate Professor and Head of Department

Professors Goldstein, Lee; Associate Professors Aichele, Cohen, Doren, Gottsegen, Kotani, Maggio, Rice; Assistant Professors Ananian, Dimock, Dunnill, Gerhart, Lixl-Purcell, McClanan

The Department of Art offers the following degree programs:

BFA art major, concentrations in art education I & II, design, painting, and sculpture
BA art major, concentrations in art history, museum studies, and studio art
MEd art major
MFA studio art major, with or without teacher licensure

The department believes that at the undergraduate level students are best served by a liberal university education with a specialization in art. Specialized degree programs emphasize the traditional disciplines of painting, sculpture, design, art history, and art education. Students seeking vocational specializations should pursue relevant post-baccalaureate studies.

Freshmen art majors are advised in CASA during the freshman year. Before the beginning of the sophomore year, students should contact Student Academic Services to request a faculty advisor in the Art Department.

All transfer students should make an appointment with the department's Director of Undergraduate Advising for a portfolio review to approve transfer credit.

Courses in drawing, painting, and sculpture in the 20's, 30's, and 50's series emphasize working from observation. Still life, landscapes, interior environments, and the human figure are the primary sources of study from which students work toward developing basic artistic/observational skills. Courses in design and the crafts in the 40's, 70's and 80 to 84 series focus on the inherent systemic logic or functional requirements of works of art.

Only those students enrolled in a degree program with a full-time load of courses may use the space, equipment, and facilities of the Art Department. Part-time students may use only the facilities directly connected with the courses in which they are enrolled.

The faculty includes artists and historians of acknowledged accomplishment in their areas of specialization. All members of the faculty teach at the undergraduate level in well-equipped facilities on the north side of McIver Building and in the Cone Art Building.

The Weatherspoon Gallery, housed in the Cone Art Building, sponsors a program of exhibitions and lectures that complement the Art Department's curriculum.

 

Art Major
Degree: Bachelor of Fine Arts
