Art, Design, and Art History
The Department of Art, Design, and Art History (DADAH) offers a wide variety of courses that seek to prepare students to successfully encounter the contemporary art world. The program encourages students to understand and synthesize traditions, and to confront challenging ideas and emerging technologies. The student-centered learning environment in the department emphasizes personal expression, alternative approaches, and experimentation. The department stresses fundamental concepts that unify all art and yet allow infinite variation. The faculty of the DADAH share the belief that intensive work, study, and involvement in art prepares the student for professional art training or personal career goals.
Information on DADAH's unique approach to achieving this mission can be found under Programs. Department life and culture contributes to our success as well, information on which can be found under About.
We encourage potential students to visit and meet the faculty and students. Prospective students can make an appointment through Admissions to speak to a DADAH faculty member and tour the studios.
The public is invited and welcome to attend DADAH's Artist Lecture Series, held on Fridays at noon, and Hunt Gallery exhibitions and openings, vernissages that frequently include introductory lectures.
