At Stetson, the Art Program finds its home in the Creative Arts Department and offers two distinct paths: an art major with an emphasis in studio art and an art major with an emphasis in art history. Students majoring in art develop their passion for art within the context of a liberal arts education, and they gain the strength in the hallmark skills of the liberal arts: learning to communicate effectively and think critically.
The art major with an emphasis in art history exposes students to the broad range of artistic work ranging from historical to contemporary. The curriculum starts by surveying art through the ages and moves into in-depth studies of topics, such as specific time periods, comics and graphic novels, art markets, legal issues, and museum collections. The curriculum culminates in a capstone senior research project focusing on the student’s individual interests.

Studio Art investigates two-dimensional and/or three-dimensional art design concepts and aspects. While exploring specific interests in studio areas such as drawing, painting, printing, textiles, ceramics, or sculpture, studio art students will gain skills, sensitivity, and aesthetic judgment. A background in the visual arts can open doors to a wide range of employment in studio art, art organizations, and applied design.
