DEPARTMENT OF FINE ARTS

The Department of Fine Arts is committed to delivering students with a solid foundation in both classic and modern practices so they can become contemporary artists. We foster multidisciplinary and integrated methods to creating art using in-depth fundamental subjects. We train our students to work as creative professionals for-profit and non-profit segments of the creative economy. As a public university, we are committed to serving as a cultural hub for the local community and emphasize the value of the fine  arts in creating a dynamic environment. We aim to cultivate in our students-critical thinking, image-making, and object-making abilities that will enable them to achieve their artistic goals.

The Department of Fine Arts is dedicated to advancing the arts by promoting critical and creative thinking, artistic expression, cultural awareness, and community engagement.

The Department of Fine Arts nurtures, integrates, and promotes the academic and artistic excellence of its graduates.
