The OU School of Visual Arts at the University of Oklahoma cultivates a vibrant intellectual community that fosters the greatest possible excellence in the study of the visual arts, design, and art history.  The School was established in 1915, and is the oldest and most comprehensive school of art in the state of Oklahoma.  Through civic engagement, we endeavor to meet the artistic needs of Oklahoma’s citizens and promote the growth of culture.  We offer the BFA and MFA in Art and the BA, MA, and Ph.D. in Art History.  We strive for excellence in teaching, publishing, and creating art and design at the highest level.  The School prepares our students for success nationally and internationally as artists, designers, scholars, teachers, and influential patrons of all the arts.
