Curatorial Studies Program

Art Major

The art major supports students in becoming visual thinkers and visual storytellers. It provides students with a working knowledge of historical and contemporary art practices as well as the technical aspects of making art through mixed media, digital technologies and installations.

Through the ARCHE Program, the department also offers opportunities for study at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Georgia State University, Agnes Scott College, Emory University, University of Georgia, and several other visual arts programs throughout the state university system.
