About Art

With two distinct tracks available in Studio Art and Art History, the Art major offers something for both creators and curators. This flexible major allows you to develop analytical and technical skills, preparing you to make your own original contributions to the field. Art students admitted to the Prototype Program will have access to personal studio space on campus, as well as the opportunity to assist select faculty on special projects and exhibitions.

Options & Opportunities

Guided by faculty that are skilled, prolific artists themselves, a BA in Art can be earned with an emphasis in art studio or art history. Art studio encompasses a wide array of traditional and digital mediums, while art history incorporates original research and/or curatorial opportunities.

Our graduates have gone onto prestigious graduate schools such as the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the University of Michigan, the Cranbrook Academy of Art, New School – Parsons School of Design, Boston University, and the University of Kentucky.


The Galleries at Georgetown College boast three unique spaces – the Anne Wright Wilson Gallery and the Cochenoeur Gallery feature a total of 12 exhibitions per year, while the Jacobs Gallery houses an eclectic range of ancient to modern art and is part of the college’s wider permanent collection.
