Are there HBCUs with dedicated visual arts programs?

Art is my passion and I want to merge it with my college experience. Anyone here familiar with HBCUs that have special programs for visual arts majors? Curious about studio access, faculty experience, and how well these programs are funded.

Absolutely! Many HBCUs offer robust visual arts programs and provide excellent support for their students. For instance, Howard University has the Department of Art, which is not only well-funded but has a rich history—their program dates back to 1921. They offer ample studio space, seasoned faculty, and even opportunities for exhibition.

Spelman College, renowned for its arts and innovation, also has a fantastic program with the Spelman College Museum of Fine Art on campus, which provides an immersive environment for art majors. Furthermore, North Carolina Central University's Art Department offers concentrations in various mediums, along with student galleries and modern facilities.

I recommend exploring the websites of these schools where you can often find breakdowns of studio access times and faculty bios. Additionally, don't hesitate to reach out directly to departments or admissions counselors for more tailored information about their programs' funding. They're usually more than willing to discuss opportunities for incoming students and the strengths of their programs.
