Located within a vibrant arts and cultural scene, our program utilizes the rich creative and business resources of Birmingham-Alabama’s largest city. We work closely with local museums and galleries to offer internships and collaborative projects. Our faculty and students exhibit in local, regional and national galleries, and contribute to many community-based projects.
We offer concentrations in Ceramics, Drawing, Graphic Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Time Based Media,
Art History and Art Education. The faculty members in these programs are outstanding,
and committed to their teaching, studio and research work.
The Visual Arts Gallery, a key component of the program, showcases a continuously changing series of exhibitions of contemporary art.
We have a number of exciting collaborative projects, including an ethnographic film course, and a number of unique study opportunities – including study away classes in Rome, the Southwest and New York City. It is an exciting time to be a student in the department.
