Liberal Arts

Artwork by Hilary Cianciosi
Art history is the foundation of the Liberal Arts curriculum because a fundamental understanding of the history of art is essential for all aspiring artists and designers.  In combination with critical thinking and effective written communication, it enables students to situate their own work within a broader context, to begin to establish professional credibility, and to prepare for further study.

The goals of the Liberal Arts program are:
•  Transfer successfully to a four-year art and design program.
•  Think critically about art.  
•  To write intelligently about art. 
•  Employ methodologies of art history appropriately.
