BA in Art - Graphic Design

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Art - Graphic Design option is a broad, well-rounded liberal arts degree intended for students who desire an in-depth graphic design specialization with a more open degree program. The flexibility of this degree allows students to pursue graphic design alongside another field of academic study. Students have the option to select a minor or a group of related courses with the assistance of their faculty advisor.

The BA in Art - Graphic Design does not require a portfolio for admission into the program. Students will be accepted to WIU as a BA Art - Graphic Design major.


There is an honors curriculum available for all Art degree programs that students may complete if they qualify for the University Honors program. See Art Honors.
