Department of Art

ENMU offers quality programs with teaching strategies aimed at developing conceptual and technical capabilities of students in order to empower them to function as professionals in a rapidly changing world. By arrangement with Golden Library, the Department of Art offers opportunities for members of the University community and surrounding region to broaden their sense of cultural diversity through exposure to year-round, changing art exhibitions in the Runnels Gallery.

ENMU Art Degrees

We offer a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in graphic design and a Bachelor of Fine Arts with an emphasis in visual arts. Other degree options include an associate art foundations program, and several minors including a visual arts endorsement area you can choose if you want to teach art in elementary school.

In any of our art degrees, ENMU students enjoy a curriculum which stresses learning and thinking skills leading to personal and educational growth with the belief that art and design are guided as much by the intellect as by the hand.
