Studio Art, B.A.


The B.A. in Studio Art is intended for students wishing for a broad exposure to studio art and art history in combination with studies in a minor area of concentration. Several minors work well as pre-professional tracks towards graduate education in such fields as: Art Therapy (Psychology), Arts Administration (Business), and Medical Illustration (Biology).  Like all of the Design & Visual Art programs, it is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art & Design (NASAD).

The Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art is a liberal arts, undergraduate course of study and consists of 128 credit hours, 48 of which are in art history and studio art.

The B.A. in Studio Art requires students to earn a minor in another program in the College of Arts and Sciences or the The John E. Simon School of Business. (See a curriculum guide for recommended sequencing).
