About College of Eastern Utah
The art department at College of Eastern Utah offers advertising design, art education, ceramics, drawing, art graphics and computer applications, industrial design, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. Courses also are offered for students majoring in architecture and elementary education. The career path depends upon the program that the student wants to enter.
For instance, the one-year certificate program is a well-rounded program for graphic design. The student studies desktop publishing, electronic illustration, advertising design, typography and color theory and an introduction to writing. The ambitious student can decide to participate in the two-year Associate of Applied Science program to expand graphic capabilities to include printmaking, drawing fundamentals, 3D modeling and animation, and a prepress and printing internship. All arts majors and minors should plan to participate in the college's Annual Fine Arts Tour. This tour includes visits to art galleries, museums, operas, plays, and musicals. It is planned to be a learning as well as aesthetic experience.

This school also awards departmental, leadership, and ambassador scholarships in addition to merit scholarships based upon academic achievement. CEU is accredited by the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges Commission on Colleges.
CEU is located in Utah with two campus locations in Price and in Blanding. The arts department is located on the Price campus in the mid-sized town of Price, which is in the middle of the state. The Nine Mile Canyon lies to the northeast, and it features some of the best ancient rock art in the state. Further east the Green River carves canyons through the desert and offers some whitewater rafting opportunities. Backcountry hiking can be found in the south, where the northern portion of the San Rafael Swell provides great scenic drives as well. The Wasatch Plateau is to the west, and this area provides cool alpine settings with forested highlands that are perfect for more hiking and for mountain biking opportunities.
The student who attends CEU will be surrounded by a variety of different settings, both in the classroom and in the surrounding environments. Since the school is located in a smaller town, this size provides the ideal situation for class cohesiveness through trips like the Fine Arts Tour and through other venues such as the Ski Bus to Park City Mountain Resort. The avid CEU student can easily fill one to four years of a college career with exciting and once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.
