Foundation Program

The Foundation Program provides a unified and dynamic experience designed to build a durable framework for all areas of study in Visual Arts. This program is founded upon intensive lecture, studio, and lab investigation of techniques, methods, and concepts.

The curriculum broadens and expands a student’s formal creative design vocabulary, while introducing new ways of thinking about images, time, space, and audience. This program encourages students to think analytically and to use their imagination to develop an awareness of the role of artists in our culture.

Students with a major in Visual Arts and a studio concentration (Animation/Interactive Media, Cinematic Arts, Graphic Design, Photography, Print Media) are required to take the following courses:

Print Media Concentration

The Print Media concentration engages new forms of artistic expression through interdisciplinary explorations by mark-making and gesture with bodily, mechanical and technological tools. A strong foundation in art history and theory is supplemented by discussions of historical, conceptual and critical approaches to print media, providing a framework for investigation into the technical and material aspects of print-based practices. Manual, photographic and digital print processes are explored with an emphasis on the fluid manipulation of materials. The Print Media concentration allows for a variety of approaches to print practice, incorporating two- and three-dimensional multiples, book arts, installations, performance, documentation and other hybrid expressions.


ART 320 - Introduction to Printmaking  is the gateway course and must be passed with a grade of “B” or better for students to continue on to upper-level print media courses.

For B.A. students

with a concentration in Print Media, the following are required in addition to the visual arts core courses:
