On July 1, 2019, the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies (VES) became the Department of Art, Film, and Visual Studies (AFVS). This decision was made after much departmental soul-searching and discussion over the past several years. As the new name AFVS encompasses all aspects of our undergraduate and graduate program, it more accurately and inclusively reflects who we are and what we do.
