Visual ArtsDegree Programs

I’m ready to share my art with the world.

You’ve always seen things a little differently. For you, art is a personal, tangible form of expression, and you’re not particularly interested in compromising your art for anyone. You'd rather fight for your ideas. And if you’re ready to turn your passion into a career where you can do what you love—whether as a fine artist, designer, educator, exhibit curator, or another pursuit—you need to start with our Visual Arts degree program. As your future begins to take shape, you’ll be surrounded and inspired by other talented, creatively driven students. And you’ll be pushed, challenged, and, above all else, supported by experienced faculty* who are committed to helping you succeed in the real world. The only thing we can promise you is that it won’t be easy. Just like most things that are worthwhile.

Hard work? Fine by me.

It’s one thing to be a creative artist working in a studio. It’s another to have real choices in where you take your art and your career. Our Visual Arts degree programs are all about giving you the power to make those choices. The focus is on helping you build the key skills you’ll need to make a living in the world of fine arts.
