Program Overview

Students must maintain a minimum accumulative GPA of 2.0 and an in-major GPA of 2.75 to remain in the major. Many students choose to continue with the B.A. in Studio Art degree option because it provides easier access to elective courses and double major opportunities, as well as some off campus study opportunities. The undergraduate program prepares students to work in fields related to art and to undertake graduate work.
