The UC San Diego Department of Visual Arts is one of the country's leading centers for study and research in art and art history. Founded in 1967 on the principle that the production, critical analysis and history of art are inter-related activities, it has long been recognized for its distinctive combination of faculty - artist and critics, theorists and scholars. The department offers five undergraduate majors, seven minors and two graduate degrees, which together represent the expanded range of art in the contemporary world. With the introduction of our new undergraduate program in Speculative Design and the peer-reviewed, digital publication FIELD: A Journal of Socially Engaged Art Criticism, the range of our research activities is extended further beyond the library, classroom, studio, gallery, museum and performance space into science and engineering laboratories, the city, the region and the public sphere.
