The Art Department at Saginaw Valley State University is a part of the College of Arts and Behavioral Sciences, with a teaching staff of ten full time and sixteen adjunct faculty. Because most classes do not exceed 25 students, you'll work closely with art professors who are accomplished artists in their own right. Their paintings, photographs, prints, and sculptures have been exhibited at numerous regional and national shows. You also will be exposed to the creativity of other outstanding contemporary artists whose works are exhibited in the Art Department University Art Gallery, located on the first floor of the Arbury Fine Arts Center.
The Visual Arts curriculum includes Art History and Studio courses in ceramics, graphic design, drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, two dimensional and three-dimensional design. Students may earn a B.A. in Art, Graphic Design, or Visual Arts Education, or a B.F.A. in Art. Students receiving the B.A. in Visual Arts Education are eligible to apply for a Michigan teaching license in Visual Arts Education, and to pursue teaching positions in K-12 education.
