Art at Evangel 

The Evangel University Humanities Department offers three degrees in art — the Bachelor of Arts in Art, Bachelor of Fine Arts, and Bachelor of Arts in Art Education.

The B.A. in Art degree program is a well-rounded approach to artistic disciplines, combining a strong presence of art history and practical expertise in various studio areas. It is a 33-hour major and is often paired with another area of study in the humanities.

The B.F.A. allows artists to explore and refine their talents in the fine arts, including drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking and ceramics. It requires 58 studio hours.

The B.A. in Art Education degree is for the creative art student seeking certification to teach in the K-12 grades. The degree program requires course work in both Art and Education, as well as a minor in a related field.
