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.
