Our courses address four goals:
- To provide a B.A. degree program for art majors who desire a liberal education and may want to prepare for graduate art school or pursue a career in an art-related field.
- To provide a certified minor in Studio Arts requiring completion of the four foundation courses and one History of Art and Architecture course.
- To provide a related area of study in studio arts for majors in other departments when they take the four foundation courses or complete 12 credits in a specified studio area*.
- To facilitate development of art-making skills and concepts through the foundation courses for all undergraduate students, while satisfying the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences creative expression requirement.
*Because upper-level courses are restricted for Studio Arts majors, students outside the department must fulfill required prerequisites or seek permission from instructors for admission into upper-level courses.
