Bringing Talent, Enthusiasm, and Diverse Perspectives

The Art and Design Department at IUP consists of 14 full-time professors. They have earned the highest level of academic degrees for their specialty and bring extensive experience and scholarship to the classroom.

Our art historians publish books and scholarly articles. Our studio artists exhibit throughout the year, and our commercial designers have clients around the world. But all share one priority and common passion: to teach and mentor their students.

All art majors work with an advisor from the Art and Design Department. We match your interest with their specialty.

Our faculty members are engaged with many activities that serve the university and greater community. Learn more about the department's galleries, the University Museum, and the Wood Center at IUP.
