More About This Degree


I had several job offers immediately after graduating from Marywood.

I graduated in 2014 with a B.F.A. in Graphic Design with a minor in Multimedia.  I am currently a Visual Web Designer Consultant for Verizon Wireless.  I had several job offers immediately after graduating and chose the Verizon Wireless position because I am a big fan of the company and knew it would be an amazing experience. 

I have worked on numerous innovative projects and have been responsible for many of the visual elements on the Verizon Wireless website, which is visited by millions of customers.  My assignments have included home page marquees, landing pages, page redesigns, and even being assigned the responsibility of Lead Designer for the Valentine's Day 2015 creative and device launches.  I absolutely love my job and am so thankful for this opportunity.  Every day is a new challenge and I welcome it.

Looking back, I believe that Marywood's school size contributed a great deal to my achievements.  I do not think I would have been able to do as much as I did at a larger school.  At Marywood, the classes were small and professors were always available to answer questions.

An Art History minor is open to all undergraduate students regardless of the major field of study. ART 113, ART 114 and ART 218 are required, in sequence. Nine additional credit hours of art history will be selected to complete the minor. Seniors may be eligible to take advantage of Marywood’s post-graduate program in art by registering for graduate level Art History courses. Students should consult with Art History professors to tailor their programs to their specific needs and to assure sufficient breadth in Western, non-Western, and ancient to contemporary art areas. For students interested in pursuing graduate work or careers in art history, special emphasis will also be placed on adequate course preparation in languages, history, and enhanced writing skills.
