Loyola University Chicago's Fine Arts Department has one major goal in teaching fine arts: to enable students to develop and refine their modes of perception and to express themselves in a variety of ways. To accomplish this goal, the department offers instruction that examines an array of studio media from their multi-faceted historical and ethnic perspectives. The Department of Fine Arts prepares students to gain technical expertise, which qualifies them to begin careers or to meet graduate school requirements.
Loyola Chicago offers a prime location for this study of fine arts. Its museums, concert halls and libraries are a vast resource for academic study. And because this city constantly produces fresh examples of jazz, architecture and public art, Loyola students gain vital access to the living history and practive of the arts.
