The CCS Art Major is for self-motivated students who are committed to careers in the visual arts. The portfolio-based application selects students prepared for a curriculum that is focused on the practice of studio art and explores historical and contemporary concepts, methods, and movements in art. Students take CCS courses and across campus, including the Department of Art, the Department of the History of Art and Architecture, and the graduate program in Media Arts and Technology.
Each student works with a faculty advisor who oversees an individual course of study to support original work. The students develop a mature body of work during the residency with several exhibition opportunities, culminating in a solo show in her senior year.
