We prepare students for careers in K-12 art education, graphic design and studio art.
The Department of Art and Design provides students the opportunity to pursue bachelor’s degrees with concentrations in K-12 art education, graphic design, and studio art.
We are an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
As a student here, you'll combine design and drawing fundamentals with a broad range of studio experiences, art history, exhibitions and visiting artists and acquire the skills, problem-solving ability, self-awareness, and aesthetic growth necessary to pursue careers or advanced study in your field.
Our goals are to prepare students for life after Wayne State, whether that be teaching in the classroom or pursuing a career in the creative field. We provide students with knowledge about the use of traditional and new technologies, materials and techniques. The rich cultural and aesthetic visual experiences we create contribute to the college and our communities.
