In the Studio Art Specialization you can work in a variety of traditional and non-traditional 2 & 3-dimensional visual arts media including painting, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, collage, book arts, digital imaging and mixed media. Two degree options are available for students specializing in Studio Art.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) in Art, a 60 credit major, is respected as the professional degree for studio art. The Art & Design program provides you with a strong foundation program in studio art and art history. You will have the opportunity to develop your creativity, self-expression, and technical skills.
The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Art, a 39 credit major, is a second degree option for studio Art majors and is typically selected by students who are double majoring, have changed majors, or have transferred into the program. An example is students who want to study Art Therapy in graduate school often choose to double major in Art and Psychology.
A significant component to the Studio Art specialization is participation in the Senior Exhibition. Working closely with the Fine Arts faculty, you will create a cohesive body of work to be displayed in the Senior Exhibition in the Andy Gato Gallery. The exhibition reception takes place the evening before graduation so that you can celebrate your success with your family and friends.
