The BFA in Studio Art degree program prepares you to excel in highly technical areas of art, including:
It's the perfect gateway to attending graduate school for a master of fine arts degree (MFA) or doctorate in art education degree.
With this professional degree, you can investigate visual and aesthetic discourse within your own artistic practice and in the context of history and contemporary culture. Because a BFA requires more art studio and art history courses, you'll engage with your discipline on a professional level, preparing you for careers in art fields or for graduate studies. You'll build a strong foundation in art technique and history and learn to research problems that require visual solutions. Through critical study, you can become a creative problem solver and evolve into a natural leader - unleashing your career potential.
The program offers three areas of emphasis:
1. 2D art: paintings, drawings, prints, and photography
2. 3D art: computer models, animations, and sculptures
3. Interdisciplinary media: photo imaging and technology-based art
With a solid foundation gained early in the program among media, styles, and methodology, followed by challenging classes with a focus on your individual interests, you'll have plenty of time and opportunity to grow your artistic practice before entering the workforce.
