The Department of Art and Design offers courses of study leading to career preparation in fine arts, Graphic Design & Digital Media, and art history as practitioners, teachers, artists or consultants; provides service courses in art to other disciplines in the University; and fosters individual professional growth and cultural enhancement by promoting artistic production and scholarly research on the part of the faculty and students. The department seeks to enrich the cultural atmosphere and intellectual awareness of the University and Northeast Florida through art exhibitions, lectures, seminars, workshops and study abroad opportunities. The comprehensive, multifaceted art curriculum is designed to produce an artistically sophisticated graduate with realistic expectations to compete in the job market or pursue graduate study. Program concentrations are in art history, painting/drawing, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture, and Graphic Design & Digital Media. The department interacts with various University and community agencies to provide conceptualization, visualization and execution of artistic concepts. All studio and design concentrations emphasize a hands-on approach and feature opportunities for exhibition and presentation. Access to the greater Jacksonville area lends additional professional appeal because of its vibrant arts community, numerous exhibition venues and art museums. Our mission is to provide outstanding undergraduate teaching in the disciplines of studio arts (including painting, drawing & printmaking, ceramics and sculpture), photography, graphic design & digital media and art history, and to instill creative, analytical, applied and theoretical skills while providing opportunities for transformational experiences such as internships, directed research and study tours and programs abroad.
