The goals of the Fine Art Department are to provide opportunities for students to increase their knowledge and appreciation of art, create an environment where they can develop as artists, and teach them the techniques and work habits necessary for successful careers or further studies.
The role of the Department of Fine Art is to be a leading force in fine art instruction at the university level and an open venue for research and debate. Students and instructors are expected to take an active part in cultural life and to maintain vibrant ties with the artistic community.
