About the Program

This program is intended for students who want to combine a studio art practice with a liberal arts education. This is the professional degree for an artist or a solid foundation for entry into a graduate program in art. There are a number of opportunities for artists to work in the following media: drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, pottery and crafts.

What Makes the Program Distinctive?

Students have the opportunity to take a number of media to the advanced level and truly experience the depth of the field. Students are limited only by their own imagination. In this program, students have had solo art exhibits, attended Masters of Fine Arts and taught at the college level. For the past seven years, 100% of the C-SC students that graduated with an art degree are hired in their field. Numerous students have continued their education and acquired Masters and Doctorates in art at the college level.
