New Rankings for the ‘Ville

The ‘Ville’s Fine and Studio Arts program ranks high nationally.

Millersville University recently scored high in two rankings for its fine and studio arts program.

College Factual
Millersville University fared well in College Factual’s 2019 rankings for both non-traditional students and for students overall who want to major in Fine & Studio Arts.

Non-traditional students:
This ranking was developed to highlight colleges that have great Fine Art programs and also great support for students who fall outside the traditional “norm.” This could include adults returning to school, part-time students, transfer students, online students and others.

Millersville’s program is ranked #3 out of 385 colleges and universities offering this major nationwide. This means Millersville is in the top 1 percent of all schools in the country for non-traditional students studying Fine Art.
