Take your next step FORWARD!

BGSU provides a nurturing environment, encouraging students to express their creative voice in a place where art and design is innovative, vibrant and full of possibilities. Our programs of study in the School of Art include studio art, digital arts, graphic design, art education and art history.

And because we are one of the largest state art schools in Ohio, we are able to offer a diverse array of studio and art history classes and study abroad opportunities, as well as the facilities and faculty to position students for successful internships and careers. Many of our students acquire hands-on experience through internships with local and regional arts organizations as well as prominent national entities organizations such as Disney Animation, Pixar and the Museum of Modern Art.

We can't wait to have you! Next steps...
