The mission of the Art Department is to instill Christian humanistic values in its students while offering intellectual inquiry in the arts, and a commitment to serve others through a liberal arts education. Integrated with career preparation in Fine Art, Graphic Design, Art History, and teacher preparation, the Art program is based on truths and principles recognized within a Catholic Tradition.
The Visual Communication and Design Certificate program enables students and office workers to expand their communicative and technical skills in order to enhance their employability. After successful completion of the program, students will be able to apply technological tools to visual design problems, create visually appealing documents and utilize appropriate media and writing strategies.
The Art Department at Madonna University has a personal, supportive approach to strengthen the development of our students. Through advising, course work, and mentoring, we nurture each student's ability while closely monitoring their growth.
