Art and Design

Mission Statement
The mission of the Vincennes University Art and Design transfer program is to provide students with a strong foundation through creative exploration in traditional and contemporary visual media. Studio and lecture courses in the Art and Design program broaden and enrich students’ understanding of and experience in visual art, design, and related creative and research areas. Course offerings also include lecture and studio classes which meet general education requirements for non-majors. Art and Design majors develop creativity, critical thinking, and presentation skills and a portfolio of work for academic transfer which also serves as a foundation for later professional practice.

Program Learning Outcomes
