Studio Art


Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

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.

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 is also encouraged to experiment in other media in order to gain a wider knowledge of the studio arts. 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.
