Azusa Pacific’s Bachelor of Arts in Art program prepares students for a lifetime of artistic expression. Students cultivate individual creativity through the study of history, technique, presentation, and social engagement as a reflection of the creative and transformative nature of God, the ultimate Creator. These then provide a framework for advanced study in one of two concentrations, either studio art or teaching/art education.
Studio art students focus on a particular discipline: drawing and painting, photography, ceramics, printmaking, sculpture, or crafts. The teaching/art education concentration, while also focused on a specific artistic discipline, is a state-approved program for those wishing to teach art in secondary public or private schools.
APU also offers an art concentration for liberal studies majors.
