Mission Statement

Art and Art History Department Mission Statement


The Department of Art and Art History at The College of New Jersey provides an atmosphere and course of study that supports excellence and professionalism in both artistic and scholarly production within the broader context of a liberal arts education. Visual and cultural literacy are fostered through the diversity of on campus art exhibitions, lectures, excursions to major art museums and collections, and study-abroad programs. As part of the TCNJ Center for the Arts, the Department of Art and Art History plays a pivotal role in the cultural life of the campus and surrounding community.
