Millikin's Art Department offers excellent opportunities for students to grow and develop their artistic talents.  A visit to our campus and a meeting with art faculty will show you exactly why we have the reputation of being one of the best small art schools in the Midwest.

We offer the following degrees: the B.A. degree in Art, and the B.F.A degrees in the following areas Studio Art, Art Therapy, Graphic Design, and Studio Art/Intermedia. Also available in conjunction with  either our B.A. or B.F.A. degrees are an Entrepreneurship Minor through the Tabor School of Business and a Specialist Certificate in Art Education through the School of Education.
