Community Arts

We don’t like stereotypes, so our art degree isn’t stereotypical. Sure, there’s ample opportunity to spend long hours in the studio painting or in the black room developing film, but there’s also the opportunity to make a difference in your community through art—it’s creation, engagement and unifying spirit. Our degree combines courses in creativity with those in history and criticism, but also with those in communication, community development, business management and organizational leadership. If revitalizing a town through artistic projects or running a gallery is on your radar, our Community Arts degree should be too.
