School & Major

Art Colleges Types and Area

When taking a glance at the 4 year colleges in the United States, the most common would be the State Universities which each state has and public universities also supported by the state. Within these colleges they have an art college and within the college they have a variety of majors to choose from. These colleges are public while they also have private universities which are under the same circumstances as the other universities. The last of the colleges are the private art colleges that are solely for art. Within the boundaries of the east and west coast, there are many art colleges and universities ranging from the Ivy League to private art colleges.

The schools are split into two major groups. The first would be fine art and the second is design. It is always good to have many choices to select from but there are many schools that cannot offer the student some important aspects of college life and skills. Therefore, it is important to consult about college selection with a professional. Not all of the top named schools have a stronger fine arts or design program than the lesser known schools. Each school has their strong points in certain areas and weak points as well. That is why we recommend selecting the student’s major before a certain school so we can find the right school for the student.
