Studio art majors are encouraged to develop a strong personal creative direction in one or more of the studio areas housed within the department. Exploration and experimentation across a range of mediums is possible in an environment that fosters a cross-disciplined approach to form and image making. Traditional studio practices share equal footing with new and emerging technologies in an effort to best prepare the studio major for the field. Theoretical, historical, and conceptual foundations are provided through offerings in art history and seminars. Students must select an emphasis in general studio, digital art and photography, painting, drawing and printmaking, or sculpture and ceramics. Department Honors Requirements: Candidates, nominated by art and design department faculty, receive honors for distinguished achievement demonstrated in part by the senior student exhibition or a senior presentation or project. Students produce a body of work for the Senior Exhibition under the mentorship of faculty in their emphasis area. Work proposed for the solo or group senior exhibition will be reviewed and approved by studio faculty in their area during a Senior Portfolio Review.
Program Delivery
This program is available:
  • via classroom (the majority of instruction is face-to-face)
Admission Requirements
Freshman and transfer students are admitted to pre-major status before admission to this major.

Additionally, students must have a minimum 2.00 GPA overall and in art and design courses. The review is scheduled for both fall and spring semester and occurs approximately midway through the semester. Students must submit a portfolio of selected work derived from their art core courses.
