One of the longest running programs
Iowa State University has one of the longest-running (since 1984) undergraduate programs of this type in the nation. Award-winning faculty members with years of professional and academic experience and an advisory board of scientists and artists help direct, advise and mentor students through their academic careers.
Fewer than a dozen such programs or opportunities exist for undergraduate studies in the U.S. The ISU BPMI program specializes in preparing students for graduate degree programs in medical and scientific illustration. Graduate schools often recommend students receive a bachelor’s degree from Iowa State because of the strength of the combined science and art components of our program.
