Bachelor of Fine Arts Degrees

Studio Arts Concentration
Students entering the university with the objective of a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree are required to complete the foundation art requirements. During their first two years in the program, BFA majors, with the guidance of their advisors and instructors, are expected to decide upon a major area studio sequence as a part of their study plans. Early in their junior year, declared BFA majors will be required to submit a portfolio for faculty review before they can finally be approved as a BFA degree candidate. Students who submit portfolios which are not approved may, with the consent of their major advisor, reapply at the end of the following term. Students who are not admitted to the BFA program may complete their degree work as general art majors in the Bachelor of Science program. BFA candidates are required to submit work and be accepted for "The All-Senior Exhibit" prior to graduation.
