 General Information

The Department of Art and Design recommends this degree for those students interested in specializing in studio art while pursuing the B.A. The B.A. in studio art is a liberal arts degree appropriate for the student who wishes to develop studio foundation skills, but desires the flexibility to take courses and minor (required) in another academic area. This degree prepares the student for a broad range of pursuits, including personal creativity, as a foundation for a related field of work, or for further study. Additionally, students who wish to pursue Art Education receive the BA in studio art, with a minor in Education.


Students pursuing the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in studio are encouraged to meet with an advisor or the chair of the department early in their program of study; advisors for B. A. students will be posted each semester.  B.A. students are required to complete a foreign language course numbered 2020 or above with a grade of C- or better. B.A. studio students must select ARTH 4067 or 4077 as one of the three 400-level art history courses required.
