Associate Professor

Art + Design

“I appreciate the willingness of faculty in other departments to collaborate for the benefit of our students. Design is a field that requires knowledge of many different disciplines, so it's an invaluable experience for design students to work with people from outside of our department.” Associate Professor Gosnell on how Austin Peay's faculty enhance student learning and engagement.

MFA Communication Design from Texas State University

BFA Fine Art Photography from the University of Georgia

Associate Professor Patrick Gosnell began his career in education by teaching commercial photography at a high school near his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia. It was during this time that he became interested in the field of graphic design and working with clients. He decided to earn a masters degree in design from Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas so that he would qualify to teach at the collegiate level. Since 2015, Professor Gosnell has taught graphic design at Austin Peay State University and has helped to revitalize the program. He currently lives in Clarksville with his family.
