B.A in Art
Students pursuing a BA in Art may specialize in Studio Art or Art History.
The Bachelor of Arts in Art offers students the opportunity to specialize in either Studio Art or Art History. The program challenges students to analyze and interpret visual content, while recognizing historical styles and the cultural forces that shape them. Students master critical thinking skills, while developing conceptual frameworks for researching and evaluating bodies of work.
All majors are required to complete a capstone experience, which integrates all learned concepts. Students produce a cohesive body of work in their field of choice, preparing them for success in their career field.
Students pursuing the studio art specialization can concentrate in any one of several media, each with its own dedicated facilities and equipment: drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, computer imaging, printmaking, photography, and ceramics.
Art History majors may choose one of two areas of focus. Students may choose to prepare for future graduate school study or complete practical training needed for museum and gallery professionals.
