School of Art
For over 75 years, the School of Art at Bowling Green State University has provided a nurturing environment, encouraging students to express their creative voice in a school where art is innovative, vibrant, and full of possibilities.
At the School of Art, students pursuing our BA, BFA, MA, or MFA degrees experience the exclusivity of a private art academy - our student to faculty ratio is 15:1 - yet enjoy the affordability of a state university.
And, because we are one of the largest state art schools in Ohio, we are able to offer a diverse array of studio classes and study abroad opportunities, as well as the facilities and faculty to position students for successful internships and careers with organizations such as Disney Animation, Pixar, and the Museum of Modern Art.
The School of Art has been accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design since 1984.
