The Bradley Advantage

Bradley offers two routes to an art degree. You can earn a bachelor’s degree, which gives you a background in art history, stylistic evolution and an art form of your choice. You also can earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts, which allows you to work more intensively in your choice of mediums. Choose your art concentration from ceramics, drawing, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Beyond the classroom, you can participate in student art clubs, community art projects and student‐run campus publications.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s art program successfully prepares you for a career or graduate school. In recent years, almost all students found employment or continued their education within six months of graduation. They’re working for the Chicago Bears, advertising firm BBDO, branding agency Roundhouse in Portland, Oregon, and companies in New Zealand and Japan. Others are attending graduate school at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Ohio State University, West Virginia University and Rhode Island School of Design.
