The Visual Arts Major provides students with a space for creative practice in a cross-disciplinary environment that emphasizes theory, practice and cultural understanding. The program is founded on the belief that visual art is a fundamental force in Egypt and the region, especially in relation to post-revolution cultural environment.
We offer our students an experimental platform for creative freedom, critical thinking, and innovation. Students are encouraged to interrogate all ordinary ideas about contemporary visual art, and are challenged to expand and create critical self-awareness about their own work and establish an intellectual understanding of the issues and contexts that inform art practice in today’s local and global visual cultures.
A total of 120 credits are required for the bachelor’s degree in Visual Arts:
