The art and art education programs at the University of Southern Indiana help students define their own artistic goals and prepare each student to become a contributing member of the art profession, the community and society as a whole.

The Art and Design Department's four integrated academic areas - studio art, graphic design, art education and art history - offer courses designed to help students develop technical and conceptual skills, establish a foundation for critical thinking and fulfill their creative potential.

Art majors choose an emphasis in art history, graphic design, illustration, interactive media design, photography or studio (ceramics, jewelry, painting, printmaking, sculpture, or woodworking). Minors are offered in studio art, graphic design, digital video, photography and art history. 

Aspiring art teachers major in Visual Art P-12 with a minor in P-12 Education Licensure to qualify to teach all grades. Art education minors are available for students receiving an education degree in a non-art discipline.

Internship programs offer junior and senior art students the opportunity to work in professional settings at design studios, museums and galleries.

An art degree from USI prepares students to achieve success as graphic designers, artists, elementary to university-level teachers, museum and gallery personnel and art historians, as well as pursue graduate studies in art.

The Art and Design Department at the University of Southern Indiana is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
