The BA in Art is offered with a concentration in Visual Studies that incorporates art and design history with a cultural study of seeing. Understanding vision to be as much a product of lived culture and a phenomenon that is as dynamic, creative and social, as it is physical and biological, you will explore differing ways to interpret the visible world that surrounds us. You will learn history and theory of the visual arts and visual experience as we address connections between topics as wide-ranging as Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa and the computer interface used in Apple’s Lisa. Visual Studies develops your critical insight into, and understanding of, what we see. It equips you for a life of rich and deep cultural experiences as our human civilization is expressed and continues to evolve. This major is offered as BA in Art, with or without a concentration in Visual Studies.
