BFA Studio Art

Students seeking professional portfolios will pursue the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (BFA.) This degree allows for a concentration in a particular field including, ceramics, painting, printmaking, graphic design, imaging arts, and sculpture. The program permits the candidate to take a greater number of classes in studio art and art history.

Admission to the BFA program is by competitive portfolio review after the student has completed 18 credit hours of studio art. BFA candidates are required to present an exhibition during their senior year that demonstrates their achievement in developing a mature and cohesive body of creative work. The BFA degree is also the foundation for graduate study toward the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degree.

BFA Interviews are held mid-semester in the fall and spring.
