This idea coupled with the opportunities that Valparaiso University's Liberal Arts curriculum offers is the strength of the Valparaiso University Art Department.

The Valparaiso University Art Department offers its majors three tracks to pursue. Minor studies in Art also serve many students majoring in other concentrations. Course work in the traditional Studio Arts as well as the Digital Arts give students the opportunity to understand how art is made, seen and valued. Historical understanding and foundations are supported by art history course work, as well as the Brauer Museum of Art. Professional internship opportunities are available to students as well as study abroad programing. Art students in the various mediums have publishing opportunities with the Light, Torch and Beacon.

For further information, contact the Department of Art at 219-465-7803 or the Office of Admission at 1-800-348-2611. Direct postal inquiries to: Department of Art, Valparaiso University Center for the Arts, 1709 Chapel Drive, Valparaiso, IN 46383.
