Fine Arts

The Department of Fine Arts provides students with a focus in studio art practice and theory, supported by art history, within the context of the liberal arts. Our curriculum offers breadth of experience at the fundamentals level in Studio Arts and Media Arts, encouraging depth of study through upper level classes that explore their discipline of choice.

Our Studio Arts (ARTS) classes provide students with a solid foundation in design theory and practice, offering classes in 2D Design, 3D Design, Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Ceramics, Sculpture Digital Photography, and Graphic Design. Our Media Arts (MART) concentration applies fine arts skaills to digital media through experiential learning on real-world projects and internships, with classes in Media Design, Digital Imaging, Digital Animation, Broadcast Design, and Video Game Design.

As part of a liberal arts education at USCB students are trained for careers as professional artists, as well as prepared for graduate study through exposure to practice-based research methods. Combining the university experience with intense studio arts practice will help students apply their knowledge in today's changing world, providing the background needed for a successful career in the arts.
