We are Minnesota's research university. We change lives—through research, education, and outreach.


We seek new knowledge that can change how we all work and live.

At the University of Minnesota, students do research alongside top professors in all majors.


We prepare students to meet the great challenges facing our state, our nation, and our world.

As a U of M student you'll engage with your professors and fellow students from the very beginning. And you'll develop your strengths with beyond-the-classroom experiences.


We apply our expertise to meet the needs of Minnesota, our nation, and the world.

We partner with communities across Minnesota to engage our students, faculty, and staff in addressing society's most pressing issues.

Art Department

  • We provide an introduction to the practice of art for all students as well as immersive training for emerging artists.
  • We promote creative expression and conceptual development through a broad range of art disciplines and practices. Initial experiences emphasizing traditional methods are supplemented at intermediate and advanced levels by experimental processes.
  • We offer courses in painting and drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, and experimental and media arts (EMA). We promote interdisciplinary practice.
  • Students pursue their work in state of the art facilities, mentored by our faculty who are all artists recognized in their fields.
