A studio art degree is intended for the student desiring a broad exposure to the study of fine art with an opportunity to pursue a required minor or dual major in a complimentary discipline. Communication and business are among the most common academic pairings. Like all of our Design & Visual Art programs, it is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art & Design (NASAD).
