The University offers a liberal arts program with a range of studio work as well as basic study in art history for the student interested in a Bachelor of Arts degree or Bachelor of Arts degree with Teaching Licensure.
The Bachelor of Arts degree prepares students for continued study or potential positions in galleries, commercial art, or in community arts organizations.
Students in the Bachelor of Arts program are encouraged to build a balanced background in the visual arts rather than to concentrate in a single studio area.
Students who are art majors will be required to attend two portfolio assessments while enrolled in the program. The first will take place after the student has completed twelve to fifteen hours of studio work near the end of the sophomore year. The second portfolio assessment will take place the fall semester of the senior year.
All art majors are required to exhibit in the annual student show which exhibits work from studio courses.
Students must attain at least a 2.0 grade point average in the major in order to graduate.
