SUMMARY

Majoring in Drawing is not only a valuable choice, but often a needed first step for undergraduates wishing to enter a career as a fashion designer, an architectural design drafter, or a tattoo artist. In fact, drawing is a ​unique major ranking as the 330th most popular degree. Last academic year alone, there were 267 drawing degrees conferred. In-state tuition for drawing at private colleges is, on average, 5.2 times more expensive than their public fellows.

With just 33 colleges offering drawing you might have a smaller selection of institutions you can choose from. If you are looking to immerse yourself with other drawing students, consider institutions in Georgia which have the most students admitted to drawing annually. less precisely, the top region to get a degree in drawing is in the Southeast region with Georgia State University and Columbus State University best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the best conference to major in drawing is the Sun Belt Conference with Georgia State University representing the conference. That said, our belief is that the best college for drawing is Pratt Institute-Main. You may also want to check out our list of the best colleges.
