I don’t know much about photography, but I do know that my little camera and I really shouldn’t attempt to take a picture with a window in the background (unless it’s dark outside the window). Awards dinner of the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters, Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson, Mississippi.

Question by mangotango21: What is a regular college with a good art program?
I am currently in high school, and I want to major in an art-related subject. I was originally looking for art schools, but as much as I love art, I don’t want my life to be set in stone, and I think going to an exclusively “art” school would do exactly that. . I would like more flexibility with job opportunities. Someone told me that in that case, I should look for a regular college with a good art program.

Could you give me a list of good regular colleges (not art schools) with good undergraduate art programs?

Thanks :)

You’ve made a good choice. Like you, I decided to study art at a broad university, rather than at an art school, because I knew that going to art school would “set my life in stone”, as you said. So I know quite a few strong universities that have excellent art programs. Look at the following schools:
- Smith College (if you’re female :grins:)
- Carnegie Mellon
- Syracuse University
- Rochester Institute of Technology
- Alfred University (but only if you plan to do ceramics)
- Brown University (because of its relationship with RISD)
- Tufts University (because of its relationship with the Museum School)
- Boston University
- Brandeis University
- Bard College
- Pratt Institute (great art school with a limited number of other majors, so maybe not a great fit)
- Parsons (fabulous art school, and part of the New School. The New School isn’t the strongest university, though. It’s good, but it’s not BU, if you get my meaning.)
- UCLA
- Temple
- Drexel (a bit of a step down from the above, but it’s good)
- University of Michigan Ann Arbor

With the schools I mentioned that have “relationships with” art schools, you can actually do a dual degree, if you’d like: a BFA at, for example, RISD, with a BA from Brown.
