Art B.F.A.

The B.F.A. in Studio Art builds on the foundation of liberal studies and offers students significant time for focused research and rigorous studio practice. This studio-intensive program is designed for student artists who have an exceptionally strong commitment to their work; seek to become independent artists, creative problem-solvers and critical thinkers; are passionate about creating artwork that purposefully combines complex ideas with an advanced understanding of media and the context for art making; develop an appreciation for the relationship between the liberal arts and the study of art/art history; and are considering further study at the graduate level and/or a career as a professional artist. As an inherently interdisciplinary endeavor, art making is enhanced by exposure to the liberal arts and sciences. Students will use this rich and diverse resource for developing relevant contemporary art. The B.F.A. in art requires 64 semester hours. Admission to the program requires a portfolio review.
