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:

The Major (79 hours)


Major Core (Foundation in Art) (12 hours)


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 deficiencies and reapply, or (3) denial of admission.

Photography (67 hours):
