Bachelor of Arts in Art

APU’s art major prepares students for a lifetime of artistic expression. Students develop a framework for advanced study in one of two concentrations, either studio art or teaching/art education.

Studio art students focus on a particular discipline: animation, ceramics, crafts, drawing and painting, graphic design, interdisciplinary, new genre art forms, photography, printmaking, or sculpture. The teaching/art education concentration, while also focused on a specific artistic discipline, is a state-approved program for those wishing to teach art in secondary public or private schools.

APU also offers an art concentration for liberal studies majors.
