Shepherd University Department of Contemporary Art
The Department of Contemporary Art and Theater is a dynamic program with a cross-disciplinary approach to learning. Students are challenged and encouraged to grow creatively and professionally as artists, photographers, graphic designers, and teachers. They progress through a carefully developed series of courses mixing the development of technical skills, language, and theories of the visual arts with the broad-based knowledge of the liberal arts essential to artists in the contemporary world.
The Department offers two degree programs; the B.A. Bachelor of Arts in Art Education or the B.F.A. Bachelor of Fine Arts with five concentration areas including graphic design, non-toxic printmaking, painting and drawing, photography/computer imagery, and sculpture. The Department also offers a minor in Art, Graphic Design, Photography/Computer Imagery and Theater.
