Option Studio Art BFA Undergraduate Option  

   Print Version Print

This option is offered within the following major(s):
Art - College of Liberal Arts



The Studio Art BFA option offers concentrations in painting, drawing, sculpture, installation-arts, printmaking, and expanded media. The primary objective of offering the BFA is to provide professional education in visual art at the undergraduate level and to enable graduates to enter studio-based careers within the creative industries.



Art (BFA) majors taking the Studio Art BFA option 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 (ART 100, ART 101, ART 115, ART 117, ART 121, ART 131) must be completed before taking upper-division studio courses for a major program. All students seeking a major or a minor must see a departmental advisor on a yearly basis.
