Major or Minor in

Studio Art

You thrive in hands-on environments. You enjoy daydreaming and doodling. You often ask “what if” questions and prefer to arrive at unexpected answers. The studio art major offers opportunities to study a wide range of art-making processes—from painting and printmaking to welding and casting, to photography and digital design. As an advanced studio art major, you will be assigned your own personal studio space.
