About Art + Design

Department of Visual Arts

The mission of the Southeastern Louisiana University Department of Fine and Performing Art's Art + Design Program unit is to educate students in the visual arts and art education in a context of a broad program of general studies. The unit provides a critical foundation that incorporates a strong background in art history, solid technical and conceptual skills, with an emphasis on the development of visual languages, and the tools for critical thinking in the broad world view. 

The faculty prides itself on its exclusive focus on undergraduate education, as well as a strong commitment to student success. Small class sizes ensure a creative atmosphere of personal exploration and discovery where each student receives individual attention. The faculty represents every area of emphasis within the program and remains current with their work by being nationally active within their professional fields.
