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, Art History, and Fine Art disciplines. Each discipline studies art, art history or the interdisciplinary arts with its own focus, yet shares the passion to advance critical viewing, thinking, and communicating skills in our students. Together, we set out to understand art in its many contexts. Our 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.
