Paul Wilson, Associate Professor and Chairperson
 

Courses in art, art history, and architectural studies sharpen students’ ability to understand, interpret, and create visual images, artworks, and architectural designs. Students develop visual literacy, engage in creative problem-solving, and gain marketable skills for a world where ideas and values are increasingly communicated visually. Our classes and studios are active, student-centered learning communities, where students create original works and analyze works of art and architecture as carriers of political, social, and religious meanings. They also enrich students’ lives by opening the door to a lifetime of aesthetic enjoyment, intellectual stimulation, and creative inspiration.

The department offers four majors and three minors, described below. In addition, the curriculum in the art major, in conjunction with an Education Studies minor, prepares students to enter the 13-month art education, Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) program at Ithaca College, beginning Summer 2023. 

  1. The B.A. in art supports broad experiences in many media and the opportunity to develop a personal voice through advanced classes. This degree is appropriate for students who have more diverse interests and would like to double major or have more than one minor program. It leads to possible career tracks such as museum work, gallery coordination, and work in fields of art and design.
  2. The B.F.A. in art prepares students interested in pursuing careers in the creative visual arts field, and for further study pursuing a master’s degree at the graduate level. This major requires a senior thesis project developing a personal portfolio and exhibition and allows for close mentorship by a faculty member during the senior year. It is designed to facilitate professional development of artists by offering a breadth of knowledge of different media and a focused, in-depth pursuit of a personal concept.
  3. The B.A. in art history prepares students interested in pursuing careers in the arts or further study at the graduate level in the humanities. This major will also appeal to students who wish to study art, architecture, visual culture, human expression, or ideas through history. Students may elect an optional concentration in museum studies to further focus their studies.
  4. The B.A. in Architectural Studies provides training for students interested in careers and master's-level study in the design professions. This program combines coursework in architectural history, theory, and sustainability studies with studio experiences in both art and architectural design to lay the groundwork for professional training and practice in architectural design, landscape architecture, historic preservation, urban design, and city planning. Note: students who wish to practice architecture and become licensed architects should pursue an NAAB accredited Master of Architecture degree after completion of the Architectural Studies B.A.
  5. The minor in art complements studies in a wide variety of majors, among them art history, cinema and photography, communications, natural sciences, sociology and languages.
  6. The minor in art history complements studies in a wide variety of majors, among them studio art, cinema and photography, communications, literature, cultures, and languages.
  7. The minor in graphic design prepares students to use technology efficiently and effectively to produce quality visual illustrations and designs, promote viewpoints, products, and events. It is fast becoming a required basic skill in our society. We teach these skills with a strong focus on aesthetics.

REQUIREMENTS FOR HONORS IN ART

Any art major receiving either the B.A. or B.F.A. in Art wishing to pursue honors in art should submit a brief letter of intent to the chair of the department by the end of the second week of classes, the spring semester of their senior year. The letter should include a request for a faculty sponsor who will work with the applicant in an advisory capacity. Honors awards will be based on three criteria: a full faculty review of the applicant’s artwork, an oral presentation of the concepts and methodologies that are the basis for the production of artwork, and the applicant’s GPA. Presentations must be scheduled by the student to take place during early March of the senior year. In order to receive honors, the applicant must have a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher.

REQUIREMENTS FOR HONORS IN ART HISTORY OR ARCHITECTURAL STUDIES

The honors program in art history offers stimulating, advanced undergraduate training for art history and architectural studies majors who show particular promise in the field. Students interested in entering the program should apply to the chair of the department during their junior year and must meet the following requirements:

  1. An overall GPA of 3.00 and a 3.50 average in art history courses.
  2. Approval by the department faculty. The decision is based on the faculty's judgment of the student's preparation and motivation to do independent research, and on the availability of two or more members of the faculty to work with the student.

After consultation with the department and evaluation of the student's ability to meet the requirements outlined above, the chair will give written notification of acceptance to the program.

Upon acceptance, the student agrees to complete ARTH 49900 during their penultimate semester, under the guidance of one or more art history faculty members. (The honors course must be completed during the student's penultimate semester so that the decision regarding honors can be made in time to be included in graduation announcements.) Research done in this course culminates in an honors thesis, which is evaluated and graded by the faculty members who have agreed to work with the student. Architectural Studies majors may include a design component as part of their thesis research. Honors are granted only to those students who receive a B or better on this project.
