Students in Classroom

Art: Art & Technology

Digital technology and art are now interlinked with technology providing new tools for the creative artist. The Art and Technology concentration provides students an opportunity to mix different types of media, both digital and traditional, in order to create new forms of art.

The art programs at Oakland City University are designed to provide a broad background in a variety of media for those students who plan to pursue careers in graphic design, web design, photography, digital media, or fine arts by helping them achieve the necessary artistic and/or computer skills to create marketable imagery. They also prepare those who wish to pursue further graduate or professional work in these areas or related studies. 

The student is to complete the required 38 semester hours in Foundational Core courses for the bachelor degree, the 30 semester hours of the Visual Art Core, 24 semester hours of an emphasis, and unrestricted electives for a total of 120 semester hours. 

Required courses in one emphasis may not be substituted for required courses in another emphasis. 

For every credit hour in a studio class, two (2) studio contact hours are required. When this requirement is not scheduled, studios will be open and accessible to students. Because of scheduling and the nature of certain studio materials, course times may vary.
