Department of Art + Art History

The FIU Art + Art History Department provides a sanctuary for the development of new visions, ideas, and techniques. Studio art majors will have the opportunity to work in a wide variety of disciplines acquiring basic and advanced skills while exploring a wide range of new possibilities. Art Education majors go through a rigorous program of study which includes studio practice, theoretical and pedagogical training. Students of Art History will learn the research methodology, theory, and criticism necessary for careers in contemporary practice. The interactivity of our Studio Art, Art Education and Art History programs helps students define their own roles as artists, art educators and art historians in today’s world. This communal atmosphere encourages artistic camaraderie, engendering trust and a climate conducive to intellectual and aesthetic growth. We provide many opportunities for each student, including visiting artist seminars, workshops, and study abroad programs. The FIU Art + Art History Department is fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) .

Located in South Florida, our department serves a truly international population of local residents and those who come from all over the world, especially from many European, Latin American, and Caribbean countries. South Florida is garnering much attention from the international art community for such events as Art Basel, Art Miami, and Art Palm Beach. Both faculty and students of the department are regular participants in their many projects.
