The department - dedicated to education, research and service in the visual arts - has long been a national leader. We have pioneered glass as a fine art. Our printmaking program was ranked #2 in the nation, our metals program was ranked #3 and sculpture was ranked #15, according to U.S. News and World Report. The internationally recognized faculty and staff of professional artists, designers and art educators strive to provide a righ, inspiring environment to prepare students for careers in a broad array of creative fields. The department's graduates hold leadership positions in the visual arts, art/design education, and arts administration in Wisconsin and beyond.


This partial list illustrates the breadth of our department and the fact that students are exposed to an extensive range of art forms and applications.
