Elon University’s Art and Art History Department is committed to scholarly pursuit and creative expression. Our students and faculty thrive in the rich intellectual community of our Studio Art and Art History programs. Both programs share in the mission of the broader university, with its dynamic and challenging undergraduate curriculum grounded in the liberal arts and sciences and integrated learning across the disciplines. Together, we set out to understand art in its many contexts and share the passion to advance critical viewing, thinking, and communication skills in our students.
