General Information

The OU School of Visual Arts includes four broad divisions: Studio Art; Art History; Art, Technology and Culture; and Visual Communication (Graphic Design). Studio Art consists of programs in painting, printmaking, sculpture, and ceramics. Art History is a humanities discipline that considers the history of art, criticism, and theory of the visual arts, visual culture, and material culture.   Art, Technology and Culture includes photography, video, film, the use of technology in art, and other emergent media. Visual Communication majors focus on graphic design, illustration, production management, and design advertisement.

The OU School of Visual Arts is the largest, most comprehensive art school in Oklahoma and is the only institution in the state to offer a doctoral program in art history. The school serves undergraduate and graduate level students in art history; art, technology and culture; studio art; and visual communication with a faculty of 25 full-time artists, designers, scholars, a full-time Sculptor-in-Residence, the H. Russell Pitman Professor of Art History, the Charles Marion Russell Memorial Chair of Art in the American West, and the Mary Lou Milner Carver Professor for Art of the American West. The school is dedicated to pursuing, promoting and supporting creative activity and scholarly research in the visual arts on both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Students from Oklahoma, and from across the country and world, come to the OU School of Visual Arts from a variety of educational backgrounds — urban, rural and suburban high schools or community colleges — with many students returning to college after other careers to gain new skills.  The school adds to this exciting atmosphere by bringing thought-provoking guest artists and scholars to campus and sponsoring visits to museums and galleries in nearby cities. The school is proud of its many alumni from the undergraduate and graduate programs who have enjoyed outstanding professional success. There is ample opportunity for students to contribute to the school through exhibition of their work and personal involvement in various aspects of the visual arts, including internships at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art and with local arts institutions.
