The Department of Art offers professional art training with an emphasis on interdisciplinary experimentation. The core studio curriculum is supported by courses in art history, theory, and criticism. Bachelor of Arts degree coursework and Master of Fine Arts degree specializations include ceramics, new genres, painting and drawing, photography, and sculpture. An interdisciplinary studio option is offered within the MFA program. In addition to departmental labs, Art majors have access to the art resources at UCLA and in the Los Angeles community.

The Art Department reserves the right to use documentation and reproductions of student art work from studio courses, student exhibitions, and other records of creative work in publications including, but not limited to, the undergraduate and graduate brochures and publications, department and school websites, and presentations and events related to student recruitment and outreach.
