We have created an environment that offers vast intellectual resources to assist our students in developing their education for the challenges they will face in their future.
Our School is committed to developing the creative, intellectual, and entrepreneurial capabilities of our students in preparing them to pursue art as a passion and a livelihood. Art Education students from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign develop valuable transferable skills in communication, organization, critical thinking, problem solving, research, and business development which will expand the possibilities for their creative careers.
We offer an intimate experience for a student body of approximately 400 undergraduates and 100 graduate students with over 45 full-time faculty, whose range of expertise, background, and interests vary widely and provide an invaluable resource for students to construct an individualized cross-disciplinary experience.
Our students have the opportunity to engage in study abroad, campus entrepreneurship opportunities, internships, and job fairs that have been designed for the visual arts.
The Art + Design curriculum provides expansive collaboration opportunities. Examples of these collaborations are studio artists working in design courses, designers collaborating with writers, and painters making movies. Students also discover the benefits of our close relationship with six academic partners in the College of Fine and Applied Arts, which includes Environmental Arts (Architecture, Landscape Architecture, Urban and Regional Planning) and Performing Arts (Dance, Music, Theatre). This rich collection of art forms provides for a full range of interdisciplinary and intellectual opportunities.
The School of Art + Design's history is long and distinguished. The School's illustrious alumni that are exhibiting, running leading design firms, and teaching at major universities include Phylis Bramson, Sarah Burns, Jerome Caruso, Arline Fisch, Richard Greenberg, Walter Herbst, Greg Holderfield, Tom Kalin, Carolee Schneeman, Bill Stumpf, Lisa Wainwright, William Wegman, Jim Wicks, and J. Fred Woell.
The School of Art + Design is committed to the creation of an environment that offers vast intellectual resources and intersections with other disciplines to assist our students in developing their education for the opportunities that will be available to them in their future.
