Art

The B.A. in Art provides the same foundation in art making through its Core studio courses that B.F.A. students receive along with additional upper level studio courses to further hone the student’s artistic skills. It encourages an interdisciplinary approach with many students earning a minor or second major from departments across the college and university. The B.A. provides an opportunity for students to develop highly personal portfolios that can incorporate art and design with work from other disciplines with very marketable results.The B.A. also reflects developments in Fine Art involving more socially engaged art practices, technology or performance based work as well as artworks premised on academic research
