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, and Graphic Design. 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.
