DePauw University’s art program ranks in the top 10 percent of art programs offered by four-year colleges and universities, according to College Factual, a website that gathers what it calls “unique insights” into higher education.

The website placed DePauw’s program at No. 47 out of 512 schools nationwide.

DePauw’s program also ranks fourth-highest among liberal arts schools on College Factual’s list. Many of the schools that make up the top 50 are large universities or arts schools.

DePauw’s Department of Art and Art History offers majors or minors in studio arts and art history and a minor in museum studies.

Studio courses are offered in drawing, painting, ceramics, sculpture, photography, video and digital art. Art history courses combine traditional and non-traditional approaches to the study of art, past and present.

College Factual made its rankings based on several factors, including earnings of graduates who majored in art, the percentage of current students majoring in art; and the institution’s overall quality.
