About the Program

The Bachelor of Arts degree program is designed either 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 or art history, 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.


(52 credits, plus Undergraduate Curriculum requirements and electives to total 128 credits)

Two Art and Design courses

Selected from the following:

Senior Capstone Experience

Additional Information

26 additional credits in studio art, which would include three advanced studios in a concentration.

Option: B.A. in Art with a Concentration in Pre-Art Therapy

Art students can combine their major program with a concentration in Pre-Art Therapy . In addition to the requirements needed for either the B.A. or the B.F.A. degree, students are required to take the Psychology, Sociology, Anthropology and Art Therapy courses listed under the requirements for Pre-Art Therapy. Students should meet with the Chair of the Department or their advisers to discuss the additional credits.
