Studying art changes the way you see the world.
You'll learn to navigate our visual world in a dynamic and meaningful way. And you'll gain the skills needed to research, experiment and solve problems creatively, no matter what your career.
Through art history, you'll develop an understanding of diverse cultures—past and present. In studio art, you will learn to express your own ideas visually. Or choose arts administration and prepare for roles in museums, performing arts groups and other cultural organizations.
Boston is our classroom. We are surrounded by world class museums and musical organizations. You will have classes at the Museum of Fine Arts, the unique Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum and the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and meet the professionals who work there.
The Department of Art & Music adds vibrancy to both the Simmons and Boston communities. See what's going on in the Trustman Art Gallery, and check our Student Portfolio site to see some recent work.
Our students go on to successful careers in museums, education, marketing, development and public relations. They become artists, doctors, professors, lawyers, entrepreneurs and designers.
