Welcome to Herron School of Art and Design!

Indiana University's Herron School of Art and Design is the only professional art school in Indiana. That means when you come to Herron as an undergraduate, you will be earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (unless you are studying Art History or Art Education)—not a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree.

Herron does not offer a BA or a BS degree in studio art. Herron follows the requirements for curriculum distribution of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), which differentiates among these degrees by the percentage of time spent in various areas of study.

As a tightly knit community of artists, scholars, art educators, and designers who push their work to its potential, we carefully maintain our focus on the quality education that has fostered the successes of artists and designers for more than a century. Our responsibility to push creative boundaries, to foster the analytical skills necessary for creative problem solving, and to challenge students to be innovative is the foundation for Herron's success.
