B.A. in Art

The art major at the Farquhar College of Arts and Sciences is designed to prepare students to be the next generation of artists and designers by emphasizing production techniques, as well as research in aesthetics, art criticism, and art history. By developing critical thinking, effective communication, and practical skills necessary for professional development and further education, graduates of the art degree program will impact the future cultural landscape in innovative and inspired ways.

Tracks are available in studio art and graphic design. The art major is offered during the day and evening on NSU's main campus.
