Program Outcomes

  1. Integrate knowledge and skills in the program of study
  2. Make ethical judgments while recognizing multiple perspectives, as appropriate in the program of study.
  3. Work collaboratively to accomplish learning objectives
  4. Utilize vocabulary of discipline
  5. Place works of art in historical and stylistic contexts and demonstrate appreciation of cultural milieu in which they were created
  6. Examine different manifestations of cultural symbolism (iconography) within a work of art in relation to geographic, historical, and cultural contexts
  7. Recognize and discuss social, psychological, emotional, and aesthetic implications of works of art in our culture, as well as other cultures or times
