The Department of Art supports the Nicholls State University mission in offering individuals an opportunity to study the visual arts.
It aims to provide:
- quality studies in all visual media (photography, graphic design, printmaking, painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture and art history)
- an environment in which students from the region can understand their personal place in the history of art
- the skills needed for both employment or continued studies in their area
- a degree in visual arts, with a concentration in studio art, applied arts or art education.
