Studio Art

The 4-year Fine Arts Studio Bachelor of Arts degree emphasizes technical skills as well as conceptual and creative development. This degree prepares graduates for professional practice, graduate study in fine art, art therapy, or art history, or other art-related career options such as museum and gallery work.

The program also includes opportunities to study off-campus both nationally and internationally. More Information >>


The general Art major reflects the Studio Art major, but is designed for students wanting optimal flexibility to double major, minor in another area (such as graphic design) or to facilitate transfer from another institution. More Information >>

Graphic Design

The 4-year graphic design Bachelor of Arts degree equips students with the knowledge, skills, and professional practice needed for a successful career in graphic design including: print, packaging, web and multi-media design.Our graphic design students have dedicated studio spaces, a print media lab, a versatile Mac environment and a digital photography studio at their fingertips. All of our students are required to gain professional internship experience that can begin as early as the conclusion of their second year (our Internship Seminar and Practicum course helps students prepare for this experience). This enables our students to experience the design profession and build career-ready portfolios early in their degree program. The major also includes opportunities to study off-campus both nationally and internationally. Students interested in web design may choose to receive an online certificate in Web Administration and Design while at Judson University.More Information >>
