The Art Program at Alma College covers a wide range of visual disciplines. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the close student-faculty relationships and the excellent undergraduate studio facilities in the Clack Art Center to design programs suited to their own needs and those of their profession—or simply to explore art.
Two major programs are offered by the Art and Design Department. The Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree is a pre-professional program in studio art or design. The B.F.A. is offered in the areas of ceramics, drawing, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture and three-dimensional design.
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree program provides a more general study suitable for those wishing to teach in the public schools. Graduates of Alma’s Art and Design programs find career opportunities in such fields as advertising, design, illustration, museum work, photography, printing and teaching.
