At Furman, we know liberal arts skills are essential to becoming successful artists and visual thinkers.
Not only does a liberal arts degree provide you with an
awareness of issues and beliefs beyond yourself, but it also teaches
you to think critically and to solve problems creatively—skills that can
benefit you in any career. Whether you choose to major in studio art
or art history, or you simply want to expand your visual interests, our
faculty will work closely with you to help you become a competent
scholar and artist. Our large studios, small class size, and wide array
of courses will provide you with the tools and private space you need to
develop your talents and learn how to market your work. A studio art or
art history degree from Furman will provide you with the foundation for
a variety of careers, including gallery management, architecture,
advertising, interior design, photojournalism, and art education.
