The mission of the Art department is to engage students in the exploration of their individual creative and historical art interests. Our faculty strives to create an environment that fosters a full range of diverse artistic expressions.
In addition, we are committed to providing a global understanding of art through direct experiences with artists, art works and architecture, as well as through the teaching of studio arts, art appreciation and art history.

The department offers a BA in art with seven different possible concentrations, including art history, graphic design and new media. We also offer an MA in teaching, and we serve non-art majors at Bridgewater through our extensive core curriculum offerings.
Studio enrollments are kept low to promote a sense of community and positive classroom dynamics. This encourages strong one-on-one student-teacher relationships, leading to an in-depth understanding and development of techniques, skills and individual style. The department contributes to the cultural richness and artistic vitality of our region and our state by training knowledgeable artists, art historians, teachers and other professionals.
