Bachelor of Arts with a major in Art


Return to Degrees and Majors Return to: Degrees and Majors

The major in art under the Bachelor of Arts degree follows established guidelines for treating art as a subject within the framework of liberal arts. It is recommended for the student whose interest in art is more general. (Students interested in the professional degree should read the requirements for a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a major in Art  degree.)

Portfolio Review

All art majors are required to submit their work for a review by all fulltime Department of Art faculty after the completion of the following courses: ART 1211 , ART 1520 , ART 1530 , and 12 additional hours of studio art courses (21 hours total.) Portfolio Reviews are scheduled during the fall semester. The Portfolio Review must take place the academic year preceding the year of graduation. Passing the Portfolio Review is a prerequisite for ART 4998  and a graduation requirement. If the Portfolio Review is not passed, it must be repeated and passed during the following fall semester. Portfolio Review occurs on the day after the last day of class of the fall semester.

Transfer students must meet this requirement with the provision that a minimum of three hours be done while in residency at the university and that the transfer courses for the remaining 18 hrs be equivalent to the required courses listed above.

Each student should submit a minimum of 15 studio works. These are to include both two-dimensional and three-dimensional works. Media variety in works is encouraged in order to aid faculty appraisal of the student’s progress. See the Department of Art for specific Portfolio requirements.

The Senior Exhibition

The B.A. degree candidate is required to mount an exhibition of artwork. The work for this exhibition must be accepted and judged by the fulltime Department of Art faculty as demonstrating significant quality and quantity to warrent the earning of the B.A. degree. The exhibition is completed in ART 4998  and is a graduation requirement.
