About the Department

 

The central mission of The Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art (BFSDoArt) is to develop students—both majors and non-majors—into critical thinkers, creative problem solvers, compassionate human beings, and life-long learners. With a focus on professional practice and leadership through creative activity, the BFSDoArt provides students with innovative curricula incorporating relevant technologies and interdisciplinary approaches to educate students with the requisite technical skills and theoretical knowledge for competitive and successful careers as professional artists, art historians, and designers. The BFSDoArt offers interactions with visiting artists and scholars, a diverse exhibition schedule in our state-of-the-art Center for Art and Theatre galleries. Scholarship, internship, and travel abroad opportunities are also available in our ongoing commitment to the development of a well-rounded future world citizen whose creative research recognizes both aesthetic issues and global awareness.

The BFSDoArt is recognized as an accredited member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
