Students following the liberal arts curriculum may prepare for careers in the fields of photography, advertising, graphic design, digital media, crafts, studio art, and museum-related work, the latter including opportunities for curators, researchers, and exhibit technicians.

Completion of the teacher preparation option in Art qualifies students for an Initial Type 10 Illinois Special Certificate with elementary (K-8) and high school (9-12) endorsements in visual art.

Information concerning the details of these portfolio reviews can be obtained in the departmental office or webpage. The Department of Art and Design reserves the right to retain student work for exhibition purposes for a period of time not to exceed one academic year from the time the work was completed.
