The art and design program at UW-Stout is unlike any other in the nation. The disciplines of art and design are strongly intertwined, each enhancing the other. All BFA students take first year foundation courses that include fine art, design and art history. As a student, you’ll benefit from instructors who — combined — have a vast breadth and depth of experience as working artists and designers. The program is very competitive and students are held to a very high set of standards. If you are ready to learn and grow past the edge of your boundaries, this is the program for you.
