The Department of Art & Design teaches students the basic principles of art, instructs students in the use of materials, encourages the investigation of the creative processes, and provides a framework for understanding the field of art in the historic and contemporary context. This knowledge forms the basic visual and conceptual vocabulary that is used to explore one's personal expression.Faculty members have diverse educational and professional backgrounds with academic degrees from major universities in the United States, and abroad. Almost all full-time faculty members have a terminal degree in their area of expertise (MFA; PhD). The diverse backgrounds of the faculty members, and their diverse approaches to teaching and creative production, combined with high standards in professional practice, create an atmosphere of excitement and challenge in the department. The Roland Dille Center for the Arts provides a unique artistic forum –including a variety of studio spaces and an exhibition gallery – that encourages personal exploration, creative expression and a strong artistic community. Art majors are prepared to perform competently whether they go on to professional practice, teaching, or post-graduate study.
