The Catholic University of America

Art

The Department of Art at The Catholic University of America offers two baccalaureate courses of study: one leading to a B.A. in Art History, another leading to a B.A. in Studio Art. Together, these programs are devoted to nurturing the production and understanding of artistic expression with the belief that art and culture are one, and that exposure to the visual arts is an essential component of every liberal education.

The Department's goal of fostering a greater appreciation of the arts is especially fitting at here at CUA, given both the Catholic Church, and the outstanding resources of Washington, D.C. Through courses both within and outside the department, art majors are provided with a broad introduction into the practice, theory, and appreciation of the arts.
