The Department of Art and Design, part of a distinguished research and teaching university, believes that making art is an expansive process. The Department has a special responsibility to develop students' individual artistic practices as well as their critical understanding of art and design. In line with our university’s strategic plan, we promote in our students the role of art and design in understanding and expressing the human experience. We cultivate an inclusive atmosphere of diversity, discovery, experimentation, problem-solving and creative thinking. The Department’s approach is learner-centered with the aim of educating socially and culturally engaged artists and designers who comprehend and challenge definitions and assumptions with a wide spectrum of artistic production.
