Welcome Art & Design Students!

The Department of Art and Design at the University of North Florida offers major tracks in painting, drawing & printmaking, photography, graphic design & digital media, sculpture, ceramics and art history.


There are two student exhibitions a year, the Juried Student show and the Senior Show, both are at the University Gallery in Building 2 on the UNF campus.


Students interested in Museum Studies and gallery work may be interested in internships at the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens and MOCA Jacksonville. In addition, classes in museum studies and gallery practices are offered.


Internships are also available in graphic design firms and corporations, photography students and area hospitals that coordinate art therapy programs.


The department regularly offers opportunities for students to experience and study art on site and in great museums. From May 27-June 30 students may study in Italy earning between six and nine hours in photography and art history.


There are a number of student organizations in the department including the Sculptors' Guild, the Pottery Guild, the Photo Club and The Osprey Design Club. The various clubs mount an annual Art Festival with music, door prizes and outstanding art for sale.


The faculty of the Department of Art and Design is composed of award winning professors and artists who have established national and international reputations.
