Bachelor of Arts in Art
The Bachelor of Arts in Art degree program is for students who desire a well rounded approach to artistic disciplines. It combines a strong presence of art history and appreciation courses with practical expertise in various studio areas. In all, the program requires 33 credits in art and must be paired with a minor of 18 or more hours, a concentration, or another major.
The Bachelor of Arts in Art degree offers talented students the ability to have multiple areas of study. While the Bachelor of Fine Arts tracks require 58 studio hours, the Bachelor of Arts provides a more condensed program with fewer studio hours. Both programs have the same requirements for art history courses (12 credits). The B.A. in Art is a good option for double-majoring and provides supplemental knowledge for any program in the Humanities Department. Students will complete a senior seminar and senior art exhibit to display their portfolio of work and prepare for their careers or graduate school.
