The Department of Art at the University of Massachusetts Amherst offers post-secondary education in a full range of disciplines. These include painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, animation and intermedia.

Interdisciplinary study is at the core of our philosophy, and we encourage students to pursue experience across art disciplines, as well as exploring the diverse fields of arts, humanities, and sciences open to them at this premier research university.
