Department of Fine Art and Art History

We seek to inspire creative artists and critical thinkers!

When you join us in the Department of Fine Art and Art History, you will gain a strong historical and visual foundation in art history and studio art. Our rigorous curriculum distinguishes our graduates as innovative thinkers and artists, ethical professionals, and articulate communicators in the fine arts disciplines.

As you compare university fine arts programs, here are the advantages Christopher Newport offers:

  • You’ll create, study and relax in a new and beautiful building dedicated exclusively to the fine arts
  • You’ll be invited to apply for endowed scholarships that further bring down the cost of attending a university already recognized as one of the nation’s best values
  • You’ll learn in a facility designed with an eye on the future. For example, you’ll have access to both darkroom and digital photography spaces.
  • You’ll be inspired by a campus featuring stunning buildings, sculpture and open spaces, and the I.M. Pei-designed Ferguson Center for the Arts adjoins the new Mary M. Torggler Fine Arts Center.
