The Fine Arts Program

The Fine Arts Program offers students the choice of two degrees; a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA). These degrees are built on a fundamental core of courses in drawing, two- and three-dimensional design, and art history. Areas of advanced study include painting, drawing, sculpture, ceramics, printmaking, photography, and the history of art. Students have the opportunity to pursue areas of individual interests through an interdisciplinary course of study. Courses outside of the student’s area of concentration fulfill elective requirements. Whether a student takes a single course or chooses to follow one of the degree programs described below, the study of the fine arts offers the opportunity to observe and analyze the world around us and express our intellectual, emotional, and physical relationships to it.


Transfer Students

Transfer students with studio credit from their previous institutions must submit portfolios for faculty evaluation. Separate portfolios that contain work representative of the coursework for transfer must be submitted for each area of study. Students must submit work by the middle of their first semester. Transfer students who do not submit a portfolio do not receive credit for their previous coursework.
