The College of the Ozarks' Art program offers students a dynamic opportunity to obtain a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in either Studio Art or in Art Education. The Studio Art degree provides emphases in graphic design, ceramics, computer art, and painting. The Art Education emphasis enables students to become certified in kindergarten through twelfth grade in Missouri and Arkansas. Conferred degrees will indicate the student's area(s) of emphasis in Studio Art, i.e. graphic design, painting, etc.
The Art department is also an integral part of the college's General Education program and provides the entire student body opportunities for introductory courses in the critical analysis of art and in the creation of visual art. In these general education courses the department nurtures the greater student body in both critical thinking skills and in creative vision. All College of the Ozarks students benefit from the incredible professors and instructors in our art program.
Through the Boger Gallery the Art department provides an exciting calendar of events for the College and its surrounding communities. Visiting artists provide exhibitions, workshops and lectures, and the department hosts an annual student exhibition from area schools as well as exhibits by graduating art majors.
Located on the first floor of the Jones Building on the beautiful College of the Ozarks campus, our Christian art school welcomes all students and visitors to its studios and to the Boger Gallery. We look forward to seeing you when you visit and to having you as a student in the college department.
