Welcome to the Bachelor of Fine Arts Program

Guidelines

The Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree program is an interdisciplinary professional undergraduate studio offering within the Department of Art. Since its inception in 1997, the BFA program has been in place to provide the greatest level of undergraduate, professional preparation for exceptional art students. The intent is to fully prepare these students to pursue graduate level study or function as professional practicing artists.

The program is interdisciplinary by design; students accepted into the program come from all disciplines within the department including ceramics, digital-media, drawing, painting, performance, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and video.  Students work to explore their creative development in an atmosphere that encourages cross-discipline activities and engagement.

Bachelors of Fine Arts candidates must gain acceptance to the major determined by application to the Department of Art after completion of 60 credit hours overall.  Applicants must have completed a minimum of 12 credits in Studio Art and 9 credits in Art History. Candidates must have and maintain a minimum 3.0 grade-point average in art courses to gain acceptance to the major.  Applicants may be accepted no earlier than the end of the student's second year of full-time study.
