The Department of Art offers a minor sequence* in Studio Art for students who are majoring in other departments. The objective of this program is to allow UB students from diverse academic programs to engage in the study and making of art. The students will get an overview of critical and aesthetic issues in art today and gain a technical skill set in the medium of their choice. The study of art leads to greater awareness of visual culture, technical processes, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities.
*Not a baccalaureate degree program.
The study of art allows students to discover their unique skills. Artists and designers produce visual expressions of culture that investigate and redefine our world. The art program prepares students for the real-world practice of art and design.
