Studio Art

The Department of Studio Art offers a Bachelors of Fine Arts (BFA) degree which offers students an intensive exploration across a breadth of 8 media concentrations (select an area of study from the menu on the left to learn more about the programs) and within a depth of discipline that allows students to prepare to be an artist, begin a career in the arts, or to continue their studies in graduate school.

Throughout the BFA curriculum, we support student’s intellectual and creative growth, fostering a strong studio practice, and preparing students for lifetimes of accomplishment and meaningful contribution as culture creators. Each studio concentration’s curriculum frames provides students with the development of skills and competencies including: team-based learning, technology, communication, aesthetic judgment, interdisciplinary and innovative approaches, critical analysis, and professional development throughout their program of study. While in the College of Visual Arts and Design, BFA students participate in arts research across disciplines and engage in the critical practice of the fine artist.

Our faculty are engaged artists and educators who are recognized nationally and internationally for their intellectual and creative research and work to ensure that students realize their potential while pursuing their passion.
