Our program is designed for undergraduate students who want to combine intensive and innovative studio art practice with an outstanding education in the liberal arts. A thorough grounding in art history and critical theory helps students explore issues in their own work and that of others. It is a major goal of our program to prepare students for meaning careers in the arts. Our students can also acquire teacher certification by enrolling the certification program offered in the School of Education after passing a profile evaluation.
Being more specifically, the mission of our Graduate Institute is fivefold:
(1)educating students to be professionals in visual arts as well as to be enthusiastic about participating in our society's art-cultural development, (2) strengthening the quality and quantity of research in visual arts, (3) increasing special opportunities for in-service and pre-service students to take practice in art education, (4) enabling students to appreciate and understand arts from both local and other cultures, and to develop the broad perspective that frees one to appreciate diversity and change across time, culture, and national boundaries, and (5) empowering students to be critical to arts from socio-contextual perspectives and to help activate the development of local arts through research, art and classroom practice.
