ART DEPARTMENT EVENTS ART PROGRAM OPPORTUNITIES


Studio Art

Programs offered:
B.A. in Studio Art
B.A. in Studio Art with Concentration in Photography and Video
Minor in Studio Art (TU)

Please consult the University Bulletin for degree requirements.

Studio courses are designed to provide students with a rigorous and stimulating foundation in visual language and thinking. Courses emphasize the development of perception and visual acuity, cognitive skills, a sense of aesthetics and facility in manipulating a variety of artistic approaches and media. The curriculum prepares students to go on to graduate school in studio or other fields such as education, art therapy, graphic design or medical illustration.

Students interested in pursuing careers in scientific illustration with a biological or physical science emphasis or careers in medical illustration should immediately familiarize themselves with the courses and eledtives, and should seek the specialized advising that is therein encouraged.

Art History

Programs offered:
B.A. in Art History
Minor in Art History (TU)

Please consult the University Bulletin for degree requirements.

The art history major provides students with an intellectual, aesthetic
and historical foundation for the study of all visual arts, including architecture,
sculpture, painting, photography and nascent media. The courses which make up
the art history major have been designed to be integrally related to the liberal
arts experience, complementing other courses and majors which are already offered
at Oglethorpe by providing comparative historical, cultural and philosophical
reference points, while at the same time functioning as a rigorous, free-standing
discipline. The curriculum prepares students to go on to graduate school in art history
and for careers such as museum work, education and art consulting.
