About the Major

This degree is designed for students who want a background in art but prefer to take more courses outside the Department than a B.F.A. degree would allow. This program prepares students for graduate study in either studio art or for a number of career areas in art-related fields, depending on the courses selected and individual interests. Students interested in two major areas—such as art and English, or art and languages—might elect a dual major or take a broad spectrum of courses in both areas.
