The program is designed for you to emerge well-rounded and ready to take on what's next!

Immerse Yourself

You’ll have the choice between three emphases as an art major:

  • Art Education sets the stage for a successful career as an art teacher.
  • Pre-Art Therapy prepares you for graduate programs in professional mental health counseling, with specialization in Art Therapy.

Also, there are two art minor emphases of Studio Art and Art History, which can nurture your passion and complement a major like business or marketing.

Connect. Develop. Grow.

"When I took a tour of UW-Green Bay, I was struck by the connections the staff had with one another and the students. While the campus is smaller, it offered a tighter knit feel and more one-on-one learning opportunities... there [is] more hands-on learning and time to develop your craft. There are opportunities outside of the immediate campus to grow from such as my study abroad trip to Italy."
