B.A. in Art

Georgetown’s 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 and printmaking, and has expanded into the realms of photography and electronic media. In recent years the department has been the beneficiary of a new photography darkroom and the Napolitano Digital Art Studio, a state-of-the-art computer art classroom.

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.
