Art and Design in Visual Studies
Assistant Professor Katelyn Greenberg
Part-time Assistant Professor Khara Koffel
The courses in the Department of Art and Design in Visual Studies foster a development of techniques and theories in the visual arts through a rigorous curriculum focused on problem- solving, creativity, and critical thinking. Students will gain the ability to communicate conceptual ideas both visually and verbally to a diverse audience in a contemporary context. This context is understood through research/investigation, analysis of lived experience, and in-class discussions/ presentations, which collectively result in an appreciation of art history and technology.
A major as well as a minor in Art and Design in Visual Studies are offered. As part of the Communication Arts Department, the Art major is inherently interdisciplinary and prepares students for research in related fields. In addition, students may pursue an Individualized Studies major, which can focus on Art but also encompass creative uses of media such as photography, film/video, sound, music, sculpture, performance, and theatre.
