Art, B.A.

About the Program

The art program provides students with the opportunity to study a wide variety of visual arts media. Together with basic instruction in drawing, design, and art history, students, under advisement, select 24 credit hours in electives in fine arts and/or design.

The Fine Arts Department reserves the right to retain artwork for official purposes, such as exhibits, catalogs, or teaching aids.

Students are expected to assume the costs of materials they use in their courses. All studio courses may have an additional instructional charge for materials used in class. Students enrolled in a studio course are expected to work a minimum of two additional hours each week outside of class for each credit granted for that class.
