Through our courses we seek to advance the Augustinian Catholic Mission of the university to awaken the soul and enlighten the individual in order to make a difference in the world.
Our mission is to foster creativity through a holistic approach to life that encourages students to visualize and actualize discoveries. The arts are about vision, discovery and the beauty of diversity as expressed through our interpretations of the real world.
Our courses seek to transform the student through the experience and perspective of the artist.
