No two artists are the same: A degree for every interest 

Our variety of programs introduce students to multiple media, upon which they can build and tailor their art background with the freedom to explore new avenues of thought and media. This wide array of majors and minors is ideal for those looking into interdisciplinary careers or more immersive experiences in a specific artistic emphasis.

The mission of our program is to help you become the artist you want to be, allowing you to select and combine programs and areas of emphasis in the ways that best suit your individual talents.

The first choice to make is whether to pursue a standard 36-credit major (requires a minor or second major), a 60-credit comprehensive major, or a 75-credit Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Then, within these degree plans, your options for area of emphasis are many.

And then there are the options for a minor in art with a studio emphasis, or art history. So many choices. . . .

The links to the right will take you to pages with the details related to each of these degree plans, so take your time in looking over all the paths you can take in pursuing your artistic dreams here at UW-Eau Claire.
