Student Opportunities

Our students' education extends beyond the traditional classroom.

  • Students learn from award-winning faculty and visiting artists and scholars.
  • Internships provide students with real-life experience. 
  • Department galleries give students the ability to showcase their work and learn from exhibiting artists, as well as participate in managing a student-run gallery in downtown St. Cloud. 
  • Organizations complement what students are learning in the classroom. 
  • A number of scholarships are available to art students.
  • Utilize the art resources in the University Library.
