The Department of Art unites several major aspects of art and visual culture: studio art, the history of art, and the study of visual images.

The Department of Art offers degree programs in Art (ART) and Art History (AHI) as well as courses in Visual Studies ( VS).

The Department of Art supports the University at Buffalo's commitment to creative research and teaching excellence. The Art Program promotes diversity, innovation, and progressive practice, featuring an internationally recognized and professionally active full-time faculty. The Department of Art collaborates with other programs in the College of Arts and Sciences and across the research environment of UB.

The study of art opens the mind to a wealth of possibilities and allows students to discover their unique skills. Artists and designers produce visual expressions of culture that investigate and redefine our world. The studio art program emphasizes critical thinking and art production skills through a combination of a broad university education and a rigorous studio curriculum. The art program prepares students for the real world practice of art and design.
