Art Education • Art Therapy • Studio Art
Three distinct academic programs for the art major lead to a Bachelor of Arts degree — art therapy, studio art or art education.
You can also minor in digital design, therapeutic art and studio art. The flexibility of our program will enable you to complete off-campus internships in areas like interior design or commercial art. Our students have worked for state agencies, advertising firms and print shops. With Capital's location in the capital city of Columbus, you'll have access to a vibrant arts community and all the opportunity to create, exhibit and experience art a major city affords.
Music is your life. It's one of the biggest reasons you wake up in the morning. Your heartbeat sets the tempo for your next composition and you simply can't imagine doing anything else with your life and career. You belong at Capital University.
We've been preparing students for a wide range of music careers since we opened our doors in 1919, about the time your great-great grandfather was listening the Louisiana Five top the music charts and legendary operatic tenor Enrico Caruso helped introduce the notion of global media celebrity. Since then, our graduates have established themselves as professional performers, teachers, conductors, composers and music business and industry entrepreneurs. Many enter the world of audio and video production, arts administration and law, while others go on to attend some of the most prestigious graduate schools in the country.
