Studio Art

Bachelor of Arts 

The studio art program stresses a strong foundation in both the fine arts and the liberal arts on which to build careers in the art field. The student is also prepared for graduate study leading to an M.F.A. in studio art, an M.A.T. in art education, or an M.A. in studio art.

By the end of the sophomore year, studio art majors choose a concentration area: ceramics, digital imaging, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, or sculpture. The studio art major takes courses not only in his/her field of concentration, but in other studio areas in order to experience and gain knowledge in a wide range of art and media methods. In the second semester of the senior year, with the guidance of the advisor, the studio art major is required to present a thesis exhibition as a culmination of the concentration studies.

Required Courses

Academic programs vary in their requirements. Students should consult with their faculty advisor and the Academic Guidebook to review the Academic Planning Form pertinent to their program of study. In addition, students should review course descriptions regarding any prerequisites for required courses.
