Degrees

Students may choose among degrees in Art History (BA) or Studio Arts (BA or BFA); a specific specialized program for the Bachelor of Fine Arts in which each candidate develops an area of competence; or a degree program in art education for teaching on several levels. The various fields of art are competitive and demanding in terms of commitment and effort. Nonetheless, there is always a place for those who are extremely skillful or highly imaginative or, ideally, both. Instructional resources, when coupled with dedicated and energetic students, have resulted in an unusually high percentage of graduates being able to satisfy their vocational objectives. Majors are urged to follow course sequences closely. It is recommended that students interested in majoring in art declare their major early to ensure proper advising. Transfer students’ status shall be determined at their time of entrance. The department reserves the rights to retain, exhibit, and reproduce student work submitted for credit in any of its courses or programs, including the senior exhibition. A use or material fee is required in certain courses.
