Art and Graphic Design

The Art Department at Notre Dame de Namur University offers degrees in art, and art and graphic design. The program is known for its rigorous studio practice and the Madison Art Center, which includes the Wiegand Gallery. The quality of the NDNU Art Department is made up of a combination of the working artists who are the faculty and our small class sizes.
