Art asks questions. Design solves problems. Work in the creative fields is crucial for the future. The visual arts inspire students to ask questions, try a new approach, find multiple solutions, and continue the learning process throughout a lifetime.

With the Art program at Chadron State College, you will find your open space to create. Surrounded by scenic western beauty and rural friendliness, students thrive with small classes, close interaction, and caring faculty who know you by name. More importantly, Art at CSC provides solid career directions, preparing students for life after graduation. Our alumni work as art educators, commercial artists, graphic designers, art entrepreneurs, and studio artists or go on to graduate school—proof that, yes, an art major can be employable.
