Elmira College's Art degree program is designed to instill students with vital skills – including critical reasoning, problem-solving, and communication – that will help in any profession. We offer four new program concentrations to specialize your artistic pursuits. You'll be guided by professors who are accomplished professional artists and serve as thoughtful mentors. Plus, you will have full access to well-equipped, spacious studios during your studies, and enjoy many opportunities to exhibit your artwork throughout the academic year.
You will develop more than just your own artistic skills – you will also learn critical thinking, communication, analysis, and problem-solving. The Art degree program at Elmira also ensures that by graduation, you'll have developed a portfolio of work to showcase to potential employers. Graduates of our Art program have gone on to become teachers, professional artists, illustrators, designers, art handlers, gallery managers, and curators. And many students at Elmira choose to double major in art/business, art/psychology, art/anthropology, art/English, or art/history.
The art major is a flexible program with four concentration options. An art minor is a great complement to many majors. Studying art helps build critical-thinking and communication skills, as well as develop new and creative ways to express yourself.
Developed in coordination with a licensed art therapist, Art Therapy is a 21-credit hour concentration that combines art and psychotherapy.
