Department Mission and Goals

The arts are an integral part of human existence, and study of the arts is a hallmark of a liberal education. Students in the Visual and Performing Arts Department acquire knowledge of the history, context, and theory of the interaction of art, society, and the self. They learn to communicate, produce, collaborate, meet deadlines, think critically, creatively problem solve, manage time, and be responsible to others, all while participating in life’s ongoing cultural conversation.

University Core Course Requirement

The core curriculum requires that all Fairfield under­graduate students complete two semesters of course­work in Visual and Performing Arts. Our courses are divided between those that cover material from an his­torical/theoretical point of view, and those that involve the use of applied skills with which you actually make or perform works of art. The core curriculum requires that at least one of your two courses in this depart­ment be a history/theory course.

Department Core Learning Outcomes

History

  • Students will have a deep understanding of the historical, theoretical, and critical constructs of a specific arts discipline.
  • Students will gain factual knowledge about works of art and will be able to identify and analyze them in terms of discipline-specific concepts and language, as well as style, genre, and historical context.
  • Students will demonstrate knowledge of discipline-specific artistic traditions, as well as the fundamental principles, generalizations, and theories behind those artistic traditions.
  • Students will apply course material by analyzing and evaluating works of art, both in speaking and in writing.
  • Students will develop, through the study of art, insights into how art affects and reflects cultures and contexts, providing students with opportunities to access, express, and integrate the meaning of the arts across a variety of disciplines.

Applied

  • Students will have a deep understanding of the creative processes involved in making art and develop a portfolio of their own artistic creations.
  • Students will create a portfolio of their own work, which captures not only the ongoing process of creation and revision, but also demonstrates students’ developing mastery of discipline-specific artistic techniques.
  • Students will be able to critically evaluate their own artistic output, as well as that of others, both in speaking and in writing, using the evaluative norms and competencies of their art, as well as using discipline-specific concepts, language, and techniques.
  • Students will develop the essential means for expressing ideas, experiences, feelings, and deepest beliefs, both of themselves and of the wider community.

Additional Fees

Studio Art courses require a materials fee. There are also separate charges for private music lessons. Students enrolling in these courses will be billed an additional fee per course on their term bill.

Internships

Visual and Performing Arts majors are eligible for internship programs in the local and regional art communities. Students may receive credit for gaining valuable practical experience in a variety of activities. Students have interned at Sotheby’s, Atlantic Records, Viacom and many other sites in both new York City and Connecticut.  There are also internships at the University's Bellarmine Museum of Art, Thomas J. Walsh Art Gallery, local galleries, museums, historical societies, television and radio stations, art studios, professional theatres, and production companies.

Performance Opportunities

In addition to its regular courses, the Music Program sponsors a number of student performing groups including the Fairfield University Orchestra and Jazz Ensemble. Members of these performing groups receive one credit for each semester. Students may apply up to six of these credits toward a major or minor in music; however, these credits do not count towards the 38 three-credit courses required for graduation. The Fairfield University Glee Club, Chamber Singers, and Pep Band are non-credit performing organizations sponsored by Student Affairs.

Theatre Fairfield is the academic production wing of the Theatre Program. The annual season includes professionally directed and designed productions; performances that feature the work of advanced directing, acting and design students; and independent projects created by junior and senior majors.

AH 0191 Art and Mythologies of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Bolshevik Russia: Comparative Systems & Outcomes3 Credits

Attributes: GDAH Graphic Design: Art History, GMEL German Major or Minor Course, GMEN German Course Taught in English, ISIC Italian Studies: Italy Component, JST Judaic Studies Minor, VPCH Visual and Performing Arts Core: History Course

This interdisciplinary approach to the visual Zeitgeist of these major political/national crises in Europe between 1917 and 1945 surveys the visual rhetoric of Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Bolshevik Russia through the widest possible definition of the visual arts. The course includes the traditional fine arts of painting, sculpture, and architecture as well as the mass cultural outlets of film, radio, propaganda posters, and the staging of public events. The class eliminates the distinctions between high and utilitarian mediums of expression; all means of persuasion are fair game. This course allows students to better understand the complexities of these political/nationalist issues; the "window" is the lens provided by the visual arts and mass media. In doing so, students recognize how the symbolic languages of mythology were married to political ideologies and shaped public opinion from the national consciousness.

If museums are "temples of culture," then we need to understand the ways these public "faiths" act while open and engaging for all. In contrast, we highlight the similarities and differences when artworks or collectible objects are placed into a commercialized, for profit-gallery/auction house context. This is an introductory course, welcoming students ready to experience and learn about the rich spectrum of museums, galleries, auction houses, and cultural institutions within the Tri-State area. Field trips include visits with top professionals who share their expertise and experiences.

Greek and Roman art serve as a rich depository of Greek mythology with a wide range of representations that evolved across the centuries.
