We offer both major
programs in art and art history. Majors may pursue an emphasis in one of the following courses of study:
Our studio art courses provide instruction in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, motion picture production, printmaking, computer imaging, and combined media. These courses are designed to help you explore creative visual modes of expression and gain familiarity with contemporary issues in the visual arts.
Studio practice is augmented by a weekly lecture series, gallery exhibitions, film and video screenings, and guest artists.
Students may also choose to minor in museum studies
, working with faculty from the art and art history department, sociology and anthropology department, history department, and the university museums.
also teach more than 20 courses in art history that trace the visual arts from antiquity to the present day. We supplement class lectures with visits to area museums, museums in New York City, and close examinations of the works in the following Colgate settings: Please see the Campus Calendar for all upcoming campus events
