All but the Art History and Theory major are practical arts programs with a focus on the creation of artistic works.

Students are pushed to develop their creativity in a way that respects their personal educational goals and acquire technical skills they need to fully express those aims. Each student is different, and meaningful interactions with multiple faculty members is critical to supporting their individuality. We offer small-group learning experiences to help bring out the uniqueness in each student, letting for them to become artists and designers capable making a lasting impact on our world.

Even the one theoretical major offered in the Faculty of Art--Art History and Theory--requires students to experience the process of artistic basic creation. The program is designed to develop art researchers who are firmly rooted in the realities of our modern world.
