Almost every aspect of contemporary life, professional and personal, includes creative competencies. Creative people thrive today because they are better able to navigate a world that is less defined. They see problems where no one else does. And those problems that others didn’t see, they solve them in unusual ways. They are self-directed as their curious nature spurs them to seek out new things. In the Department of Art at Augusta University, we know that this makes the art and design skills we teach extremely important and valuable.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts program is designed to prepare students for professional careers in art, particularly those who plan to pursue graduate degrees in art. We offer concentrations in General Art, Drawing/Painting, Sculpture/Ceramics, and Printmaking/Photography to suit a variety of artistic interests. Our programs guide students to produce a substantial portfolio of work, including mounting a exhibition, by the time they graduate. We also provide ample opportunities for internships, community involvement, study abroad, and participation in student clubs and organizations, and all of our programs are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
