Program Description and Features

The Department of Art and Design programs at California State University, Dominguez Hills are characterized by a unique and close correlation among the Art History, Studio Art and Design Options, and by a strong coordination among the different studio areas. These Options introduce students to potential careers in the art world as well as providing personal fulfillment through creative and scholarly endeavors. Although a minor is not required, those who foresee a career in art are encouraged to complete a minor in the Department of Art and Design. Some courses are offered in the evening to allow flexible schedules.

The Art History option offers a diverse range of courses with emphasis on the cultures of the Americas, Asia, and Africa, as well as the achievements of contemporary and women artists. The Studio Art Option offers students a solid background in both traditional and contemporary media in closely supervised small classes. The Design Option introduces students to careers in the graphic design field. The department also offers a Certificate in Digital Graphics, a program which introduces students to applying technology to the solution of artistic problems. In addition to the major and minor options, the Department of Art and Design offers courses for both General Education and Liberal Studies.

The Department of Art and Design is located in a university, centrally located allowing access to major art institutions and galleries throughout Southern California. The students graduating from the Art and Design department at CSU Dominguez Hills receive a high quality education because of the small class sizes, accessibility of instructors and personal advisement throughout their years on the campus.

The Objectives of the Department of Art and Design are:

  1. To offer courses for both art majors and non-majors that acquaint them with the art of world cultures and provide them with artistic experiences;
  2. To improve students artistic skills and comprehension of the creative process;
  3. To introduce students to career oriented skills for use in the various fields of art;
  4. To prepare future teachers to present courses in the California Public Schools;
  5. To provide artistic experiences for both the university and local community through the activities in the Art Gallery.

The Fine Arts facility is located in LaCorte Hall. All of the traditional visual arts areas have generously sized studios and the majority of these adjoin exterior patios, which further extend their usable space and take advantage of Southern California's mild climate. The studios are furnished with a wide range of equipment for various media.

The University Art Gallery contains over 2,000 square feet of exhibition space. The Gallery has frequent exhibitions, including guest lectures by exhibiting artists, and provides for two Senior Art Exhibitions for graphic design and studio art respectively, each spring semester.

Students have additional access to studios outside of class time.

Academic Advisement

Advising for Art & Design majors and minors is done by art and design faculty members as well as the College of Arts and Humanities advisor. Students must stop by the Department of Art and Design to be assigned to an advisor. The advisor will facilitate the student's smooth passage through his/her educational experience. Students must consult their advisors each semester before registration to discuss their program. For General Education information and advisement, contact the Advising Center located in WH 220, (310) 243-3538.

Preparation

High school students planning to major in art at CSU Dominguez Hills will be best prepared by taking a maximum variety of art courses offered in their school, especially in traditional studio art areas, such as drawing, painting, ceramics, and 3-D studies. In addition, they should have some general exposure to the history of art. It is assumed that students will have the necessary precollegiate academic skills of reading, writing, and mathematics.

Community College transfer students seeking admittance
