Hands-On Experience

We understand that employers hire experienced graduates. As an Art & Design student, you will have the opportunity to participate in undergraduate research fellowships as early as your freshman year and faculty members will work closely to assist you in your internship experiences.

You will gain experience and knowledge of the art submission and exhibition process and have opportunities to showcase your work each year through the following:

  • Gateway Regional Arts Center Annual Juried Art Student Exhibit
  • Fine Arts Showcase
  • Women’s Studies Celebration
  • Bluegrass Biennial Exhibit
  • Sophomore and Senior Exhibitions
  • Inscape literary and visual arts journal

There are also many excellent education abroad programs available at MSU and our faculty members are dedicated to helping you find the resources needed to expand your experiences.
