School of Art & Art History at University of Illinois Chicago

The UIC School of Art & Art History was founded on the principle that history, theory and practice are intimately entwined endeavors. Home to world-renowned artists and scholars, who are equally committed to their research, practice and teaching. Located in a diverse, public, urban, research university, our programs ignite intellectual and creative curiosity, empowering students to expand the boundaries of the possible. Students are actively encouraged to engage departments across the university as well as the cosmopolitan city of Chicago.  Art students work across media-specific disciplines where individual research and studio work are complemented by collaborative efforts and socially relevant public projects and civic engagement. The Art Department offers a BFA, Minor in Art, and a MFA.
