Art Major & Minor


By its nature, the visual arts attract creative people who strive to carve out their own niche. That’s why the Goshen College art major offers you a variety of concentrations to choose from, including art entrepreneurship, studio art, visual arts education (K-12), pre-architecture and art administration.

In addition to comprehensive classes, you will a find number of extra-curricular opportunities to spark your creativity, like the three-week Arts in London class. You’ll create and display your work, study the artistic achievements of cultures old and new, sell your work at student art sales, or apply your skills to set designs or costumes for a theater production. You can also enroll in the distinctive art entrepreneurship program that combines developing your artistic skills and learning how to open a small business.

Today, GC art major graduates pursue careers as graphic designers, teachers, architects, ceramists, professors, jewelers and business owners across the globe. But before you can find your creative niche in the art industry, the years you spend studying at Goshen College art program in Indiana will take you behind the potter’s wheel, behind the welding mask, teaching in a classroom and mounting your own senior art exhibit. Upon graduation, you’ll have the creative and practical skills to seek an imaginative, rewarding career.
