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.
