The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Visual Art offers an academically well-rounded approach to a visual arts education. As a liberal arts program, it is especially suited to the art student who has diverse interests in areas other than visual art. Although the emphasis remains on studio art practice, students in the BAVA program also have the opportunity to pursue a variety of elective courses, minors, or even other majors outside of the Fine Arts Major.
Approximately eleven courses in studio art are required for the BAVA, including two required foundational courses in drawing and two-dimensional design and color. All art majors are also required to take three art history courses and three upper division studio courses. The Visual Art program allows for up to seven additional elective courses, which can be taken in any area in the university.
A Visual Art major requires 55 credits, including: ART 100 Design and Color (5 credits) ART 120 Drawing I (5 credits) ART 211 Survey of Western Art I (5 credits) ART 212 Survey of Western Art II (5 credits) ART 220 Drawing II (5 credits) ART 240 Painting I (5 credits) ART 250 Sculpture I (5 credits) Choose one of the following two courses (5 credits): ART 310 Art Since 1945 ART 316 History of Modernism ART Electives at the 300-400 level (15 credits)
The Fine Arts department offers an exciting and unique opportunity for interdisciplinary study in the arts. While the emphasis track is specific to studio art, this program requires students to take courses outside the chosen field; students are encouraged to explore the endless possibilities that exist between studio art and other art forms.
An Interdisciplinary Arts major with a Visual Art Emphasis requires 60 credits, including:
ART 100 Design and Color (5 credits) ART 120 Drawing I (5 credits) ART 211 Survey of Western Art I (5 credits) ART 212 Survey of Western Art II (5 credits) Choose one of the following two courses (5 credits): ART 310 Art Since 1945 ART 316 History of Modernism Choose two of the following courses (10 credits): ART 220 Drawing II ART 240 Painting I ART 250 Sculpture I ART 330 Relief Printmaking (or ART 331 Monotype Printmaking) ART Electives (25 credits total; 10 outside emphasis, 10 at 300-400 level)
