Art Majors

Students interested in our art major have opportunities to create and show their work in annual student shows.  Our Foreman Gallery hosts renowned artists’ exhibitions and events.  Hartwick’s Yager Museum of Art & Culture provides a “learning lab” for the study of the fine arts.

While a portfolio is not required for admission to the art department, it is encouraged.
