The School of Art combines the best of both worlds: the resources and faculty of a large liberal arts institution with the personal attention that comes in a close-knit community. As the largest art department in Louisiana and the fourth-largest major at LSU, the School of Art brings together more than 35 full-time faculty members and 500 undergraduate and graduate students to explore and embrace studies in art history, ceramics, digital art, graphic design, painting & drawing, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.
The LSU School of Art offers Bachelor of Fine Arts and Master of Fine Arts programs with concentrations in digital art, graphic design, and studio art, and a Master of Arts in Art History. Tracks in studio art include the areas of ceramics, painting & drawing, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. The art history program at LSU is interdepartmental: the undergraduate program in liberal arts lives within the College of Humanities & Social Sciences, and the graduate program and art history faculty live within the College of Art & Design’s School of Art.
