B.A. in Art

Georgetown’s Studio Art program focuses on the individual student’s experiential development of the imagination and creative thinking processes as an integrating force in the liberal arts curriculum. The program reflects Georgetown’s aim to educate the whole person.

To fulfill the mission of the comprehensive curriculum, the Department offers the core components of traditional disciplines — painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and electronic media. The Department has dedicated classroom spaces for each discipline, all housed in the Edmund A. Walsh Memorial Building.

Access to the major artistic works is an important synergistic component of the program. Georgetown is uniquely rich in surrounding artistic resources. The museums and galleries in the Washington area support by example understanding of technique and the establishment of personal goals.
