University of Mississippi

Welcome Prospective Students

Welcome to the University of Mississippi Department of Art website. Here you will find information about degree programs, faculty, gallery exhibits, and facilities.

The Department of Art is a vibrant community of artists and art historians dedicated to educating future generations of designers, researchers, educators, and artists. Currently, there are over 250 undergraduate art majors in three programs, and several graduate students in the Master of Fine Arts program.

It is an exciting time to be a student in the Department of Art. In Meek Hall, we are in the process of enhancing our facilities and equipment.

If you are a prospective student, we hope that you will come to visit, perhaps to a reception at the Meek Hall Gallery to meet faculty, staff, and students. Individual tours of the department or the gallery can also be arranged. If you are an alumnus, we hope you will let us know what you are doing in your life and career.
