Art and Design at Missouri State

The Department of Art and Design is the largest and one of the most varied publicly funded departments of art and design in Missouri. MSU A+D is dedicated to providing a quality curricular and extra-curricular experience to prepare individuals for careers in art, design, art education, and art history, as well as to developing culturally aware, independently minded and imaginative leaders by educating the next generation of creative thinkers.

The department is additionally dedicated to enhancing student and community understanding of and engagement with the visual dimensions of culture, serving the university and broader community through the Student Exhibition Center, the Brick City Gallery, and other public venues and collaborative service activities. Graduates find meaningful careers in many areas, such as advertising, publishing, education, as graphic designers, professional studio artists, studio and freelance photographers, computer animators, digital artists, museum or gallery personnel, and consultants.
