Art students can choose from a diverse array of courses, from typography, photography and packaging to mixed media, printmaking and ceramics. Internships with graphic design firms and practicing artists are a big plus. Art students display their work in on-campus venues including the library, Minthorne and Lindgren galleries, Studio 3 (on campus gallery) and in local galleries. Since 2009, we have published the Hagios design annual, which showcases student graphic design work and illustrations.
Art majors can apply for travel opportunities like Juniors Abroad and semester-long programs in New York City (NYCAMS) and with overseas programs. They can also apply for summer research through the Richter Student Research Grant program.
Our alumni teach art in a number of area high schools, create commissioned works, participate in exhibits and art festivals as professionals, and do graphic design work as free lancers, in graphic design firms and at area nonprofit organizations.
