Careers in Art and Design
Picture Yourself in a Career in Art & Design
Our B.F.A. degree in Graphic Design at Middle Tennessee State University guides students through the creative process while they build a highly competitive educational foundation at a nationally accredited university. Our graduates are recruited for the top design jobs in the region and across the US. Our B.F.A. degree in Studio Art prepares students for a practice in a studio art, as a guest artist or lecturer — or even to apply to post-graduate programs in the Fine Arts. Our B.S. degree in Art Education can prepare you to be a future elementary or high school educator, and our B.A. and B.S. degrees in Art History programs open up career possibilities at galleries and museums.
Graphic Design students meet creative industry professionals at The Department of Art & Design's Portfolio Review. (above) Students work independently in studio space and collaboratively in a variety of methods and media to gain career-building skills and experience. (below)
