Welcome to the Department of Visual Arts
Cal State Fullerton’s College of the Arts is distinguished by its fully-accredited Department
of Visual Arts, which provides more intensive study options than most private or public schools on the west coast. Fine arts, new media, and design programs provide quality learning to 1,600 undergraduate and graduate students within state of the art studios, classrooms, computer
and design labs, and galleries. Off campus, students engage in partnerships and internships with regional studios, artists, and museums; and CSUF art graduates go on to careers within Southern California’s robust creative economies. According to College Factual , Cal State Fullerton is in the top 10% of all schools in the country for non-traditional* students studying Fine Art (*includes adults returning to school, part-time students, transfer students, online students and others.)
I invite you to visit our beautiful campus. We will gladly share our recent publications, and keep you apprised of present and upcoming programs and community projects.
For questions or a tour, please call the Art Office at 657-278-3471.
