The certificate focuses on giving law enforcement students the opportunity to gain training in various techniques that they may need in a variety of different jobs.
Although Vermilion doesn't offer any programs specific to earning just an art degree, Vermilion recently built a kiln shelter on the campus for wood and soda firing.
One of the art classes offered at Vermilion is a course called Environmental Design. The course is required for Parks and Recs majors to learn how people are apart of the environment.
