As an Art & Design major at Suffolk University, you'll learn in small groups—in both studios and traditional classrooms—and enjoy personalized attention from dedicated professors who are also practicing artists and designers. These experts will bring their experience from their studios, galleries, and firms into every class. Best of all, you'll be in the heart of Boston, surrounded by galleries and studios, and beautifully designed hotels, restaurants, and shops—all within walking distance of campus.

Suffolk's undergraduate and graduate students alike—along with the community members who take continuing education classes here—benefit from being part of a tight-knit enclave of artists and designers while enjoying the University's many resources.

We encourage you to explore your other interests, too. You can take classes in everything from Spanish to advertising, join a service organization and make a difference in the community, show off your acting chops at the Modern Theatre, or study abroad. More options mean a richer educational experience. No wonder our well-rounded graduates are so successful.
