What is the studio art major like at Notre Dame?
"It's so supportive," said studio art major Mallory Spiess. “There's a whole different environment when you're surrounded by a lot of other creators and artists and designers."
In studio art, you'll begin with required courses in drawing, 2D and 3D foundations, and art history, and then choose one of five concentrations:
- Painting and Drawing
Studio art majors pursue their passions while developing skills such as creativity, comfort with ambiguity, empathy, and communication.
After graduation, students go on to top graduate and professional schools and work in a variety of professions and industries. First jobs include:
- Photo editor, NBA Entertainment, Inc.
- Graphic designer and animator, ECG Productions
- Leadership development, Advantage Solutions
- Sales associate, Follett
- Photographer, Lauren Alexandra Photography
“Being able to understand art is something that all humans should be able to do if they want to develop fully as a person," said studio art major Yuki Yoshioka. "I can think of no better way to do that than the studio art major.”
