When you pursue a major or minor in the Art Department at Seattle Pacific University, you will find that the programs acquaint you with the fundamental elements and principles of the visual arts and design; develop your skills in the use of various traditional and experimental forms of studio and technological media; and encourage application of your skills in a manner that engages contemporary culture.

Your curriculum will also build cultural literacy through exposure to art history, global culture, and critical theory; and encourage your exploration of the spiritual nature of art and design as an expression of your faith.

Our Mission

From tactile to technical mediums, students learn the elements and principles of visual art and design. Critical thinking skills are also developed, equipping graduates to view their work in a broader historical, cultural and spiritual context. Graduates of our program are prepared to begin advanced study or work professionally in art and design.
