Find your creative career.
Today’s creative economy needs graduates ready to be
innovators, collaborators, and makers. Our Art & Design programs at
UW-Stevens Point prepare you with skills to meet those challenges.
Students choose us because of our reputation for a
welcoming community, passionate, supportive professors, excellent preparation

that matches their unique interests.
We are evolving! This fall Art & Design will join
forces with Interior Architecture, Media Studies, and Professional
Communication to become the new School of Design and Communication. We are the
only multi-disciplinary school like this in the UW System, so we can offer
exceptional opportunities for you to learn collaboratively and become
Art & Design programs
We offer three majors in Art and Design: Art, Graphic Design, or Studio Art. With these there are
two different degree tracks, the BFA which is an intensive professional
preparation degree in Art or Design; and the BA which is the Liberal Arts
degree. We also have minors in either Studio Art or Art History.
Minor in Studio Art
Our Minor in Studio Art is a great way for you to dip a toe in the creative waters. At only 21 credits you can take the Art Minor and add other Minors to it. If you like the Art experience you are having, you can easily grow the Minor into a BA because all of the entry courses are the same. Enjoy the connection to your creativity with the Minor in Studio Art as a nice place to go while you focus on your other studies.
Minor in Art History
We also have a Minor in Art History which is very easy to add to any of our degree tracks. Whatever your aspirations are, knowledge of Art History helps you see the world more richly. Our dedicated faculty in this area are passionate about helping students understand the power of visual culture, globally, throughout history, and in our world today. If you are thrilled by Art History, and motivated, they can assist you in navigating your way to further study in graduate programs.
At UW-Stevens Point we work with students
individually to realize their career goals. Our faculty work professionally as
artists, art directors, consultants, graphic and environmental designers, and
exhibition curators. Their dedication and variety of experience helps ensure
our students are successful.
