Art B.A.—Studio Art

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Departments, Programs, and Requirements for Majors and Minors

Bachelor of Arts:

The Bachelor of Arts with a major in Art provides students with a breadth of techniques and concepts as well as concentration in one studio area. The student also pursues art history interests and must engage conceptual and technical achievements to express personal interpretations of themes in visual media.

Students majoring in Art (B.A.) who also want to major in Art History must complete 24 hours of Art History courses that are not used to complete the requirements for the major in Art.

II. Required courses outside the major—none

III. Other departmental requirements:

Prior to graduation, the degree candidate must participate in a group senior exhibition. This exhibition ensures that each student will complete a thematically and technically cohesive body of work as a portfolio for professional career purposes. The portfolio will be created in the fourth‐level class in the student’s area of studio concentration. Major, oral and computer competencies will be satisfied in the fourth‐level class.
