The Department of Art and Digital Media at Olivet Nazarene University endeavors to provide a rigorous visual arts education that inspires and equips students to become lifelong practitioners of the visual arts. Rooted in a Christian worldview, we strive to prepare students for creative professional service, fostering collaborative thinking within our global society.
About the Degree
Through classes, critiques and conversations, students work through their artistic struggles to achieve success. With a variety of concentrations including Drawing, Painting, Photography, Graphic Design and Media Arts, students get hands-on experience and learn how to sharpen their abilities in various forms of art. Olivet offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (B.F.A.), a professional degree that offers students more breadth and depth within our department and prepares students for life after graduation whether that be graduate school or employment. In addition, we have a Bachelor of Arts degree (B.A.) which requires less hours and is a great option for students interested in a double major.
