The undergraduate printmaking program, the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Printmaking, pays particular attention to developing personal imagery, while providing a solid foundation in the techniques of lithography and intaglio. A Master of Fine Arts in Studio Arts graduate degree is also available.

The visiting artist and collaborative print initiative are exciting components of the program where nationally-recognized artists work with students to produce limited edition prints. 

The printmaking program is dedicated to preparing students for life as practicing, professional artists. Through a unique partnership with the Artists Image Resource (AIR) in Pittsburgh, PA select printmaking students may intern each year, working with AIR’s executive director to learn new processes and collaborate with professional artists.
