Studio Art Program
Art invokes insights, tells stories, records history, expresses emotions, illuminates our relationships and helps shape a complex world. Major in studio art at the University of Mary Washington and you’ll study contemporary issues and conceptual approaches to making art. All the while, you’ll expand your skills and your portfolio – in drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, ceramics, printmaking, digital media, and more.
Please consult the UMW Undergraduate Catalog for specific and up-to-date major requirements.
Undergraduate outcome data is collected by the UMW Career Center each year. The data is then broken down by major in order to determine how many graduates in each major are employed, attending graduate school, or pursuing a different path within 6 months of graduation.
“Knowledge Rate” describes the percent of graduates for which the institution has reasonable and verifiable information concerning the graduates’ post-graduation career activities.
“Career Outcomes Rate” describes the number of graduates who have landed in any of the employment categories (full-time, part-time, internship) in addition to service, military, and continuing education divided by the total number of students for whom an outcome is known.
