The Department of Art & Art History at the University of Mississippi offers three undergraduate degree programs.
- Bachelor of Arts in Art History
- Bachelor of Arts in Art
- Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art with emphases in
- Graphic Design
- Imaging Arts
The BA degree has a deeper and wider general education foundation than the BFA degree. The BA degree provides flexibility for combining the study of art with a minor field of study. BA students can use their art electives to focus on the studio area of their choice. The BFA degree requires competitive entry after 6 art courses. BFA students then gain wider training across the studio areas, gain depth in their chosen emphasis area, build a professional portfolio, and hold a final thesis show.
