According to the University of Arkansas' Department of Art, "the mission is to offer the highest quality educational, research, and service programs in the visual arts. These goals encompass our professional and liberal arts programs, at both graduate and undergraduate levels, in art education, art history, graphic design, and studio art. We seek to recruit and retain a diverse, academically productive, and intellectually ambitious community of students, faculty, and staff to participate in these programs. The Department of Art aims to prepare students for graduate study and meaningful employment in the art and design fields and allied professions.
