Art Major and Minor
The Seaver College art department at Pepperdine University offers a bachelor of arts degree in art, as well as minors in art and multimedia design. We also provide students the option of earning a secondary teaching credential in art through additional electives.
Our studio art curriculum is designed to foster our art majors' creative ability and art appreciation. There are many opportunities for creative artists and scholars, including careers as art teachers, professional artists, animators, craftspersons, and designers. Some of these fields require advanced training beyond the undergraduate art degree.
Art Minor: Our art minor encourages students who love painting, sculpting, and digital arts to move into the studio to create art. Highly marketable, our art minor pairs well with any major at Pepperdine and demonstrates that a student is well rounded and can think outside of the box.
Multimedia Design Minor: Our multimedia design minor emphasizes advanced work in graphic design and multimedia production, including Web page construction and evaluation.

During the senior year, each studio art major organizes and displays a major exhibition of work. The senior exhibition is representative of the student's best work at Pepperdine University.
The Art Club is an active, student led group made up of art majors and non-art majors alike. Every year the club puts on numerous events including a huge student art exhibition in the fall.
Service Learning in Art
As part of their coursework, students work with special needs teenagers from local schools to mentor a group of high school students while fostering an appreciation of studio art. Service projects provide valuable opportunities for students to apply their knowledge of art while engaging and collaborating with our community.
