Program of Study
The visual arts curriculum at SVSU includes art history and studio
courses in ceramics, graphic design, drawing, painting, photography,
printmaking, and sculpture. The Department of Art is part of the
College of Arts and Behavioral Sciences. Students may earn a B.A.
in Art, Graphic Design, or Visual Arts Education, and also a B.F.A.
degree. Because most classes do not exceed 25 students at SVSU,
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.
