Applied Visual Arts Undergraduate Major (BFA)
This major has been terminated effective Summer 2019.
Also available at OSU-Cascades.
We offer two options in Applied Visual Arts:
- Fine Arts BFA [Terminated summer 2017. Replaced by 'Studio Arts BFA' under Art major]
- Photography BFA [Terminated summer 2017. Replaced by 'Photography and Digital Art BFA' under Art major]
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.
Completion of an option is required to earn a degree 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.
