B.F.A., B.A. & B.S.

B.F.A. in Art

The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is intended for those students whose goal is the professional production of visual art. Only those students serious about preparing for a studio career in the visual arts and willing to commit the time and energy necessary to achieve professional competence in their chosen area of emphasis should enroll.

The art major allows students to develop visual vocabulary, foster a deeper understanding of the formal visual relationships present in the art and design process, enhance their aesthetic awareness of art forms, and to promote the competency to independently seek further professional growth.

Within the major, students develop competency in several media, i.e., painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, fiber, metals and jewelry, printmaking, and photography as well as foster a professional command of at least one medium. Upon completion of the degree, students are prepared to pursue the professional production and exhibition of their own art or more in-depth study at the graduate school level.

The B.F.A. in Art offers an Integrated 3D Emphasis, combining Ceramics, Fiber Arts and Weaving, Metals and Jewelry, and Sculpture.
