University of Puget Sound is an independent liberal arts college with 50+ areas of study, including Studio Art/Art History and Theatre Arts, as well as a renowned School of Music. Scholarships range from $13,000 up to full tuition, room, and board.
The Department of Art and Art History offers two Bachelor of Arts degrees: Studio Art and Art History. The two majors are distinct, but students in each area are required to take supporting courses in the other to ensure breadth and depth in their knowledge of art. The specific education of artists and of art historians, which includes technical skills, visual analysis, and research methodologies, are taught within the context of our liberal arts institution. The department values providing a strong liberal arts education and writing and critical thinking skills are emphasized in all art courses. Department of Art and Art History courses serve majors as well as students who are enrolled in the Artistic Approaches core. Careful attention is given to meet the needs of students from diverse majors and programs. The Department of Art and Art History occupies three buildings with Kittredge Hall and its gallery as the nucleus. Studio art courses are also taught in the Ceramics Building and the Sculpture House. Approximately eight exhibitions are held each academic year in the Kittredge Gallery, including a juried student show in the fall semester and the senior studio art majors show in the spring semester. Degrees are also available in Music and Theatre Arts.
