Challenging yourself through artistic expression
Whether you’re interested in art as a minor, taking art classes as a requirement for another major, or are looking for electives that can help you express your passion in an artistic way, Concordia University offers a variety of hands-on art courses.
Through these classes, you learn artistic technique while discovering your personal vision and voice. The program seeks to reflect the diversity of technical and intellectual approaches practiced in all forms of visual art, giving you the background knowledge and freedom to pursue your creative outlet.
Art studios — including drawing, painting, ceramics, calligraphy, and stained glass — provide practical ways to express yourself. Students are challenged to develop creative solutions in each of the media, and ultimately advance in skills through personal projects. With talents and projects as unique as you are, it’s exciting to see how you will choose to share your artistic vision.
Art as an education endorsement
Students majoring in Education with a Secondary Art Endorsement will take 30+ course credits in art to fulfill their degree requirements. The goal is to provide wide-ranging exposure to various art media, providing a well-rounded background in the visual arts.
Art as a minor
Students who wish to devote a substantial portion of their liberal arts education to the study of art but don’t wish to major in this area may choose to declare art as their minor. The required 18 credits of the art minor includes both theoretical (ART) and personal artistic skill development (AS) courses.
