Fine Arts Minor/MIAD Program

Fulfill Your Desire to Create

Marquette's Fine Arts minor represents the fruits of a unique collaboration between Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design (MIAD) and Marquette University. Each minor is 18 credits and offers a specifically tailored blend of theory, conceptual practice and creative execution within a focused discipline. Classes are taken at MIAD and taught by practicing creative professionals. MIAD is fully accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), which accredits visual art programs. Thus this collaboration offers students an exceptional opportunity to experience of the best of Jesuit education while taking advantage of the offerings from a highly esteemed Fine Arts College. In choosing one of the three Fine Arts minors, students are able to pursue creative development with a highly specified focus.

  • Studio Art
  • Photography
  • Graphic Design

The tuition cost of enrolling in MIAD courses is included in the Marquette full-time student tuition rate. However, other course material fees may apply and students will need to pay them directly to MIAD before the start of classes. Additionally, MIAD requires that all students own a laptop computer. MIAD faculty strongly recommend a 15” Apple MacBook Pro. This is the computer faculty use when they teach. It is also the preferred choice of art and design professionals. Minimum required software is listed by academic program and year on MIAD’s Open Book Learning initiative, available on the MIAD website. All MIAD courses are offered on-site at MIAD, which is located at 273 East Erie Street.
