UNLV Art Announcement

Oct. 6, 2020

Thank you for your interest in the Department of Art at UNLV. We hope you are doing well. We look forward to learning about what you are making, writing, and doing. UNLV is working hard to monitor COVID-19 trends, follow state and federal guidelines, work together as a community, and maintain the community's ongoing health and well-being. At this point, the University is taking a hybrid approach to instruction, with some courses taught remotely and some courses taught in-person, though this could change. UNLV's Coronavirus webpage contains information and links to the most up-to-date news: https://www.unlv.edu/coronavirus. The FAQs page might be especially helpful: https://www.unlv.edu/coronavirus/fall-2020-faqs.

Following the University, The Department of Art is:

  • limiting time on campus
  • working in large part remotely
  • holding most meetings and events online
  • frequently cleaning
  • hosting small classes in large rooms
  • assigning multiple rooms to single courses
  • reconfiguring classrooms to adhere to social distancing guidelines
  • lowering seat caps in some courses, following mandates about masks
  • providing visual cues to discourage individuals from congregating in hallways or stairwells and to help individuals remain at least six feet apart

Some instructors teaching in-person are using an A/B or A/B/C schedule. In this format, students meet in smaller groups (group A, group B, etc.) for discussion or demonstrations during class times. Some instructors who are teaching in-person are also moving some of the classwork to remote formats. At this point, all classes of 50 people or more will be remote. Further, students who cannot attend an in-person class due to health-related issues can request academic accommodations.

There are many sections of excellent courses in the Department of Art. To plan your schedule, thank you for scheduling an appointment with College of Fine Arts Advising by going to www.unlv.edu/finearts/advising/appointment. If this online scheduling does not work, please call 702 895-5390. For up-to-date information about computer labs, please consult: https://www.it.unlv.edu/computer-labs
