The B.A. Studio Art degree provides for a creative studio art experience that pairs well with studies in other fields. Many students choose this curriculum because it provides credit hour flexibility for elective courses, greater ability to pursue double majors, minors and certificates, as well as off-campus study opportunities. The undergraduate program prepares students to work in fields related to art and to undertake graduate work. Classes include foundations and 2000-level studio art courses, art history courses, 3000- and 4000-level studio art courses, a variety of liberal arts courses, and two years of language study. Students who wish to pursue a B.A. in Studio Art should maintain a minimum accumulative GPA of 2.0 and a major GPA of 2.75 to successfully complete the degree.
There are no requirements beyond University admission requirements. Students can declare a B.A. Studio Art major without submission of a portfolio.
Change of Program Policy
There are no requirements beyond University admission requirements. The first two years of the B.A. Studio Art and B.F.A. Studio Art degrees share a common curriculum which allows students the opportunity to seamlessly move into the B.F.A. even in their second-year of study, if desired.
External Transfer Admission
No requirements beyond University admission requirements.
Opportunities Upon Graduation
After graduation, studio art majors enter graduate study, seek employment in museums, art centers and galleries; or work in related fields.
