Department of Art

Bachelor of Arts

The Bachelor of Arts degree (49 credit hours) provides an option in Art History or Studio Art (ceramics, drawing, glass, painting, printmaking, metals, sculpture, photography and intermedia arts) and requires a senior thesis or project. All students go through periodic reviews of their portfolios throughout their undergraduate education. The School of Art reserves the right to retain examples of student work for exhibition and accreditation.
This degree program requires 2 years (or the equivalent) of study in one foreign language, normally courses through the 202 level.
Art students who meet the grade requirements at the end of their first-year meet with the primary School of Art advisor to select an area of specialization.
Students are assigned an advisor within their specialization upon completing 30 hours of coursework. Courses provide students the opportunity to work with professors in state-of-the-art studio facilities, visiting artists and designers, and exhibition opportunities.
Students are strongly advised to pursue required course sequences during the regular academic year.
