Art Degree Programs

Earn your bachelor's degree in Art from Marylhurst

Two degree programs available (B.A. or B.F.A.)

Marylhurst University offers two degree programs focused on art: a general Bachelor of Art (B.A.) or a Bachelor of Fine Art (B.F.A.).  Each provides solid training applicable to a wide range of careers in the visual and design arts.

>> B.F.A. in Art
>> B.A. in Art

Enhance your degree with a focused area of study

Each Marylhurst art-degree program includes concentration areas that allow students to specialize their studies.  Within the B.F.A. program, students can select focus areas like photography, drawing, sculpture or contemporary practice; and our B.A. in Art program include a preparatory track for those interested in a career in art therapy. 

We recognize the richness of diversity among students. Whether you are attending full-time for professional training, or taking a class or two to acquire an appreciation of art, you will feel welcomed.

Learn from practicing art professionals

Our faculty are practicing professional artists — ensuring that your Marylhurst education is directly related to contemporary practice outside the classroom.

Marylhurst is accredited

We are accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, one of six regional accrediting bodies recognized by the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. We have been accredited by NWCCU since 1977.
