The Department of Art unites the disciplines of art, art history and theory. Practicing artists and designers are expected to cultivate research, theory and history in their work, and concurrently art historians, theorists and curators are compelled to engage with multiple visual platforms and environments beyond the traditional discourse of art.
Our graduate program’s emphasis on interdisciplinary practice, supported by the university’s comprehensive research facility, is at the core of our departmental mission. We have developed internationally-recognized programs, emphasizing work of the highest quality, as well as maintaining our long history of the cutting edge research in art.
Graduate students in the Department of Art represent some of the brightest new talents in the fields of innovative art creation and conceptual theories.
