What makes an OBU Studio Art degree special?

Art and Design offers several degrees that cover most of the fields of art. We are small enough that degrees can be tailored to each individual’s particular interests in art. Art courses are a part of your freshman year curriculum. The student art club is active and you get to know your fellow art students within your first semester at OBU. We also take a trip every other year to New York City, where we meet professional artists and designers, to give students a sense of career possibilities after college.

What are OBU graduates doing with their Studio Art degrees?

OBU Studio Art graduates are working in advertising as designers, graphic artists and illustrators. They are professional photographers. They are architects and interior finish specialists.

They are graduate students in institutions throughout America.
