Design your future with a USM Art Degree

"The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance." — Aristotle

As an art student at USM, you will explore your creative problem solving ability through one-on-one instruction and mentoring from accomplished artists and faculty. You can design the degree based on your interests, with three key concentration areas: Art Therapy, Graphic Design, and Studio Art.

You will also benefit from nationally renowned guest artist presentations and exhibits, USM’s 24-hour access to Xavier Studios (drawing/design, painting/printmaking studios, and a Mac computer lab) as well as access to the darkroom and ceramic studio.


As a senior, you'll have an opportunity to show your best work – regardless of your concentration – during your senior show, presented at the USM Student Art Exhibit.
