Why Art at Andrews

  • Spend a summer touring to countries like Italy, France, Egypt and Jordan. You'll get to sightsee, sharpen photo and design skills, and understand the beauty of art in different cultures.

  • We offer four degrees that meet individual needs and serve as the starting point to the achievement of dreams. Paintings, drawings, sculptures... You name it, you’ll make it!

Careers in Art

Our art degree is the ideal starting point for your career. What can you do? Work as a college professor of art, fine artist, illustrator, sculptor or potter. Where? There are opportunities in museum, hospital or school settings. And if you want to be your own boss, you can even open your own gallery someday.
