Art - Photography Concentration, (B.F.A.)


Return to College of Communication and Fine Arts Return to: College of Communication and Fine Arts

University General Education Program (41 hours)


See Graduation from the University  for the University General Education Program requirements. Note that the Humanities category is satisfied for art students who meet all B.F.A. in Art requirements by taking two of the following three courses:

Concentrations


[Art majors must be formally accepted into a concentration. Admission to the University and completion of foundation art courses do not guarantee placement in a concentration. Admission is selective and is based on a portfolio evaluation that reflects professional standards and meets concentration expectations. Space availability may also affect admission decisions. A concentration entrance application and a portfolio should be submitted upon completion of foundation courses (ART 1210 , ART 1215 , ART 1311 , ART 1314 ) plus additional concentration-specific courses (see concentration areas for these courses). The portfolio includes, but is not limited to, artwork from these courses. Guidelines and application forms for concentration admission are available in the department office and from faculty advisors. Consultation with a faculty adviser is recommended before or during portfolio preparation. Transfer students must meet concentration entrance requirements. After review, the department notifies the student of one of the following: (1) acceptance, (2) recommendation to correct deficiences and reapply, or (3) denial of admission.]

Photography (67 hours):


Entrance (18 hours)


Students may submit portfolios for review no earlier than the semester that the entrance requirements are being completed. Enrollment in 3000 or 4000 level studio courses is based upon this review.

Art Electives (9 hours)


Art electives complete the 79 semester hours of course work.

Graduation


For the B.F.A. in Art, a total of 120 semester hours is required, 85 of which must be in professional course work that includes ARTH 2101 and 2102. A minimum of 42 upper division semester hours is required for the degree and a minimum grade of “C” is required for all courses in the Art major.
