Choosing a major
Are you not sure which major is right for you?
You will have an experienced, knowledgeable Admissions Representative who will talk to you about
your background, your interests, and your goals. You will be able to ask all the questions you want
about what each major is, what it offers, and what the differences are between them.
Are you interested in many different majors?
We welcome you renaissance types. At the Academy, we not only allow you to study across any
areas of art and design you choose, we encourage it. No matter what major you ultimately choose,
you will have the flexibility to customize and manage your coursework to reflect all of your
diverse interests, all with the help of your personal academic advisor. Although you will be
choosing a home department to start with, we don’t want you to feel pressured to choose your final
major when you apply if you are not ready yet. Talk to your Admissions Representative about making
your first semester classes right for you, should you wish to have the choice between certain
majors in the future.
Are you absolutely certain about what you want to study?
There are still many exciting choices you can talk to your Admissions Representative about. Each
one of our majors has advanced coursework that reflects the same types of specializations out there
in the industry. Are you interested in jewelry making? Printmaking? Comic book illustration?
Copywriting? Acting? Documentary photo? We have all of this, and so much more.
Whether you want to know more about the multiple majors that involve your interests, or whether
you want all the information you can get about one of our majors, we are happy to talk to you. Just
call us at 800.544.ARTS, or go to our home page at
www.academyart.edu and login to a live chat with an admissions representative.
