Art students may choose to pursue Bachelor of Arts in Art, or they may choose the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree with a specification in Art Education, Graphic Design, or Studio Art. The Art Education emphasis allows a student to certify to teach Art in Texas public schools or private schools, grades 1 through 12. Graphic Design at UMHB prepares students to work professionally. Typography, visual problem solving, image making, along with conceptual skills are developed, preparing students to communicate ideas and information within a commercial environment. The Studio Art emphasis allows a student to work in disciplines including ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. Dedicated classrooms and studio labs are available for each of these areas, offering students the resources needed to realize their creative goals.
The Art curriculum is designed to give students a foundation of art knowledge which will prepare them for careers, vocations, and graduate programs in Art. Concepts and processes in the curriculum stress perceiving, expressing, appreciating, and evaluating experiences in the visual arts. Methods of original and independent thinking are encouraged to stimulate intellectual, professional, and cultural growth. Programs planned according to students’ needs offer maximum flexibility in the context of a liberal arts education. The Art Department amplifies the liberal arts philosophy by featuring balanced learning experiences for students in non-Art disciplines as well.
