Mission Statement: The WKU Department of Art offers paths to explore, experience, and expand the possibilities of artistic expression, an indispensable part of human society.

Whether you envision yourself building a professional studio practice, pursing a career in graphic communications, teaching art at a primary or secondary school, or exploring a world of art history, we're ready to help you reach your goals.

With programs that vary in length and concentration, the WKU Department of Art supports and challenges students along a variety of life-enriching paths. The BFA degree in studio art or graphics is a comprehensive, focused program for students interested in pursuing a professional creative career. Our range of BA programs in art education, art history, and studio art introduce our students to a variety of career paths that benefit from studies in the visual arts.

Whatever path you choose, you will be working with energetic art professionals who have gained national and international recognition in their respective fields. Our faculty introduce students to a world of art by hosting visiting professionals, traveling with students to conferences and exhibitions, and leading study-abroad programs around the globe.
