Major 

Applied Visual Arts Undergraduate Major (BFA, CRED, HBFA)

Print Version Print
College of Liberal Arts | School of Arts and Communication


Options

Fine Arts BFA
Photography BFA

The Applied Visual Arts (BFA) is also available on the OSU-Cascades campus.

We offer two options in Applied Visual Arts:

  1. Fine Arts BFA
  2. Photography BFA

The Applied Visual Arts program is an interdisciplinary curriculum that enables students to gain a deeper understanding of their own ideas and how they relate to larger historical and cultural contexts. Courses at the 100 level stress fundamental aspects of visual literacy. Courses numbered 200 through 499 offer increasingly intensive study in art history, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, expanded media, and drawing.



Requirements for BFA studio options in Applied Visual Arts:

Applied Visual Arts majors may not take required Art courses on an S/U graded basis. Students may not use courses in which they have earned less than a C– to satisfy BFA requirements. A minimum 3.00 grade-­point average must be maintained in all art courses used to meet BFA requirements.

The core curriculum studio courses must be completed before taking upper-division studio courses for a major program. Applied Visual Arts majors are required to see the Art advisor on an annual basis.
