Undergraduate Programs A+D

Art programs are designed to develop the student's creative faculties, a sense of critical judgment, and fundamental skills and techniques. In each of the concentrations within the art major, the principal and supporting courses have one general purpose: to instill a mature, professional attitude toward the process of artistic creation and expression.
Students enrolled in the School of Art and Design at PSU will acquire:

  • Knowledge and experience of the creative problem solving processes.
  • Knowledge of discipline-specific skills and vocabulary.
  • Knowledge of art history and design.
  • Knowledge of critical theories in art.
  • Knowledge and experience to formulate a cumulative body of work in their discipline.
