The CSUB Art Department offers a wide variety of instruction and activities in the visual arts. The curriculum includes courses in various media (drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, new genre, sculpture, and ceramics), art history, and contemporary art. Most courses are open to all CSUB students, both majors and non-majors.
