The School of Art & Art History (SAAH) provides a creative, multidisciplinary environment for students of the studio arts, the history of art, and art education. Established in 1936, the school is firmly grounded in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences. It encourages interaction among its diverse faculty as well as collaboration with related disciplines across campus.
Iowa's art and art history graduates enjoy success as practicing professional artists, professors of art history, teachers, museum directors and curators, theater designers, commercial designers, and art administrators.

Within the Studio Division, there are 8 programs, each with a Program Head. They are Ceramics, 3D Design, Graphic Design, Jewelry and Metal Arts, Painting & Drawing, Photography, Printmaking, and Sculpture and Intermedia.
