The Foundation Program is a series of courses that establish a visual groundwork necessary
for advancing into upper-level work. The curriculum content focuses on the concepts,
media, and techniques that are the core language and grammar used to establish visual
literacy. Students will continue to draw on this visual core for their upper-level
courses and into their professional careers. The Foundation program requires Visual
Concepts: a freshman introductory course, four selected foundation studio, and two
art history survey courses to be completed within the first three semesters.
