Formerly Photography BFA option (892).

 

The Photography and Digital Studio BFA option concentrates on digital and traditional photographic processes and approaches to making contemporary art but also on related technological arts such as video, sound, installation, and computer-based arts. 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 professional, studio-based careers and within the creative industries.



Art (BFA) majors taking the Photography and Digital Studio 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 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.
