The Creative and Fine Arts Department currently offers a B.A. in art education. The long-standing commitment to liberal arts is the foundation for our art education program. Visual and creative art enhances the quality of our lives through the experience of gallery and museum exhibitions, theater, music and dance performance.
The art major is an ideal marriage between the phantasmagoric and the practical. It fosters an appreciation of the artistic process while simultaneously establishing a rewarding career in education.
The Fine Arts Department - housed at UNE's seaside University Campus in Biddeford, Maine - is a community grounded in instruction by scholars and professional artists with national reputations.
We nurture and encourage individual growth, development and expression. Our students are challenged to become technically and visually fluent in the language of the visual arts, as well as develop an extensive background in art history. After a firm grounding in a foundation program students are guided in finding and developing a personal artistic vision.
The graduate with a B.A. in art education will not only be able to impart knowledge of art at an appropriate intellectual level, but will be a trained professional artist in their own right. In this manner, the graduate will become a conduit of the art experience to not only future students, but to parents, other educators and to the community at large.
