An art major at LHU features studio experiences combined with a broad-based liberal arts background. You will take courses in western and non-western art history, as well as studio courses such as drawing, painting, sculpture, pottery, arts and crafts, photography and electronic art as part of this multi-faceted major.

This flexible program allows you to select courses from a wide variety of studio art and art history offerings and choose an area of specialization. Students will be introduced to traditional and contemporary art media and content to help them develop visual literacy and aesthetic awareness.

The Bachelor of Fine Art is a professional degree and requires a more concentrated and specific art experience. Students may choose to concentrate in one of three specializations. This program is more selective and to be admitted, students must submit a portfolio as part of the application process for admission to LHU. This sampling should include twelve to twenty pieces of work.

Students will find experiences in music, from marching band to choral ensembles. VISIT THE LHU BAND WEBSITE.
