BFA in Studio Art

This program provides a comprehensive studio art degree for students desiring to pursue studio art-related careers or seeking artistic enrichment. The degree can be directed toward either a discipline-specific studio art practice or a cross-disciplinary and/or cross-media studio art practice. In addition to core required courses, students are required to complete a 24 credit area of concentration requirement in a single discipline.

Admittance to the BFA program is based on a portfolio review during your Junior year and grade-point average in applicable courses. Prerequisite courses can be taken before entrance into the program, and Freshman and Sophomores are recommended to enroll in the BA Studio Art Track program so they can be assigned an advisor and discuss program options.
