Earn your bachelor of professional studies degree online

You will earn the same diploma as our on-campus students
Study for a degree or a concentration in the arts develops and deepens your understanding of your particular artistic interest and enhances your ability to express your own concepts and ideas. You can focus on fine or graphic arts, performing arts, creative writing, media arts, art history or arts management while you explore historical and cultural context, theoretical and philosophical issues and current developments and perspectives related to art. Your studies will help refine your research skills, your artistic technique and your ability to form and communicate ideas, images and critical judgments. Together with a faculty mentor, you create a program to meet your specific needs and goals.
What's a bachelor's degree?
