The Washington, DC, area offers exceptional cultural and artistic resources, and Marymount’s Art program capitalizes on this unique wealth.

Marymount’s B.A. in Art provides an education in diverse media and focuses on studying, creating, and evaluating art. Bolstered by rigor drawn from art history, Art majors create a body of work at the senior level, which is evaluated by artists from the chosen field. Art majors will also complete an internship in an art agency, gallery, or museum, or in an apprenticeship under a professional artist.

Easy access to Washington’s many art galleries and museums enhances the study of art at Marymount, with destinations such as the National Gallery of Art, the Corcoran and Freer Art galleries, the Hirshhorn Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, the Phillips Collection, the Renwick Gallery, Dumbarton Oaks, and the National Museum of African Art, available to satisfy a variety of creative and intellectual interests.

The University also offers minors in Art History, IllustrationStudio Art, Business, and Psychology. For those who wish to teach Art, a teaching licensure program is available as well. The department also offers coursework in dance and music within the fine arts discipline.
