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 (20 Units)
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 (23 - 24 Units)
Our multimedia design minor emphasizes advanced work in graphic design and multimedia
production, including web page construction and evaluation.
