About University of Idaho Studio Art and Design Program


The art and design program has a rich 100-year history at the University of Idaho. Bachelor and master degree programs are offered in art, art education, and studio art, with concentrations in design or fine art. Students undertake coursework in graphic design, interactive design, digital imaging, painting, sculpture, printmaking, mixed media, drawing and art history and theory.

The art and design program is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).

Rich studio culture
The studio practice is the core of the studio art and design programs. Studios are generally two to three hours in length – ample time to fully immerse yourself in your work. Students often have opportunities to work with clients from the community on real art and design projects.

Personal attention
Small class and studio sizes of 20 students mean you have frequent interaction with your professors. You receive personalized guidance and one-on-one expert instruction from faculty members, all of whom are successful artists and designers who actively practice and exhibit their work nationally and internationally.

Interdisciplinary learning
We are unique in our philosophy of creative collaboration across the disciplines. Here, you work closely with students from all art and design disciplines. Our location in the College of Art and Architecture allows you to also learn alongside students who are studying architecture, interior design, landscape architecture, and virtual technology and design.

Close-knit community
Our supportive, family-like atmosphere makes it easy to get to know your professors and classmates. This welcoming environment encourages thought-provoking discussion and creative exchange both inside and outside the classroom or studio, resulting in a more engaged learning experience.
