Art Studio Major
Art studio majors at Saint Mary’s are provided exposure to a wide range of media and develop the critical and conceptual skills needed to realize a personal artistic vision.
Art studio majors, while immersed both historically and conceptually, examine the purpose, function, and aesthetics of the chosen art form within the larger scheme of the art world. Students learn requirements of a professional career in art and are guided in the building of a professional portfolio including a résumé, an artist statement, and a showcase portfolio.
Art studio majors might pursue careers as architects, art dealers, art directors, craft artists, curators, fine artists, illustrators, photographers, recreational therapists, and elementary, middle, and high school teachers.
