Art Department


Prospective Students


Students are admitted into the Art Department through the regular Muhlenberg College admissions process. Although not required, we suggest that prospective students with a high interest in the visual arts visit the department and meet with a member of the art faculty.

Art Talent Awards

Prospective students interested in pursuing the visual arts may be considered for a Muhlenberg College Talent Grant ranging from $1000 to $4000.

To apply, please submit or interview with a portfolio of your work consisting of 15-20 slides, digital images on CD or high-quality 8x10 prints. Students who receive this award must commit to being an active member of the Art Department by completing at least one art course per year, but need not declare an art major.
