Reasons to choose Art as a major

Choose Art

As a student in the Art Department, you'll be part of a vibrant community of more than twenty instructors and over 300 majors. You can choose among several degree paths in the visual arts, depending on your career goals ().

But whether your choice is studio art, graphic design, art history, or art education, you'll find yourself immersed in a stimulating artistic environment, one that challenges you intellectually and creatively to fulfill your potential.

Class sizes are small, and the instruction individualized, so you won't be just another face in the crowd at UWF. As an Art major, you'll enjoy personal attention from professionals in the field (Faculty and Staff).

You'll find, too, that learning is encouraged beyond the classrooms and the studios.

Through the workshop and lecture series, Genius Loci, you'll meet with visiting artists, critics and art historians, people who are identifying and shaping tomorrow's visual culture (Genius Loci).

Perhaps you'll become a member of the Department's student club, called the ARTery, and attend its Film Noctis series (Student Organizations).

In any event, your creative impulse will be stimulated by TAG's (The Art Gallery) many exhibitions, as well as host of other activities both on and off campus.
