Our programs and hands-on faculty help prepare students for fulfilling careers as professional artists, and also for related careers in museums, businesses, galleries, and more!

Millikin's Art Department offers excellent opportunities for students to grow and develop their artistic talents.  A visit to our campus and a meeting with art faculty will show you exactly why we have the reputation of being one of the best small art schools in Illinois.

We offer majors in B.A. Studio Art, B.F.A. Studio Art, B.F.A. Art Therapy, and B.F.A. Graphic Design. Also available in conjunction with other departments on campus are the B.A. in Studio Art with an Art Business Minor or Entrepreneurship Minor through the Tabor School of Business and a Specialist Certificate in Education (Art Education) with any of our B.F.A. degrees.
