The Cal Lutheran Experience

Art major photo of student or faculty

Art history is really about the study of the history of visual ideas, or the study of creative thinking and visual strategy. I want students to think creatively and analytically, to engage themselves and their constituencies more deeply into whatever they are most absorbed in. Studying art history involves learning about history, government, architecture, religion and psychology, in addition to art. This kind of cross-disciplinary investigation adds value, grows imagination, and creates opportunity—personally, communally, professionally.

Dr. Hawkins’ classes made me passionate about the study of exercise and movement. I was able to apply what I was learning in my 'Exercise Physiology' and 'Advanced Exercise Physiology' classes to my own life as an athlete and at the clinics and hospitals I interned at.
