The Certificate in Art Studio allows students from across campus, regardless of their major or degree program, to complete an integrated academic art program. It was developed for students with an interest in studio art who do not intend to major in the visual arts, allowing them to engage in a structured, meaningful art studio experience, and cultivate their talents.

Undergraduates from Interior Design, Textile Design, Business, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Sciences, Math, Economics, Religious Studies, Psychology, Journalism, Communications, Languages, Agriculture, and more participate in this popular certificate program. These students may or may not have taken art courses in secondary or post-secondary studies.

This program is also open to those who have already completed a Bachelor’s in Art, but now want to study in a different area of emphasis, such as Graphic Design. These students should apply to the university through the Division of Continuing Studies as a Special Student, and then work closely with an advisor in the Art Department to substitute higher level courses for the foundational studio courses.
