About this Program

The BFA Art degree is designed exclusively for students who have completed AFA degrees and wish to continue their development as contemporary artists and entry-level professionals. It is also a degree that prepares students for an MFA, the required degree for teaching in colleges and universities, and prepares students in part for other post-baccalaureate degrees such as those in art therapy, arts administration, or curatorial studies. Working closely with advisors, students select an array of upper-division courses in 2-D media (Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking), 3-D media (Ceramics and Sculpture), and Integrated Media (Photography, Video, Multimedia and Digital Tools). Students also participate in a two-semester interdisciplinary studio to develop group projects and a body of work and in a senior seminar on professional practices for artists such as creating presentation materials and writing grants and artist�s statements.
