|Field of Study:||Fine/Studio Arts, General
|Description:||Students completing the programs in Fine Arts develop a well-rounded perspective on the world; develop critical thinking skills and creative problem solving abilities; and communication skills transferable to many environments within and beyond fine arts related fields. The degree earned is a liberal arts degree, Bachelor of Arts (B.A.), a less specialized yet more versatile diploma, unlike a Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.). Students obtain a foundation for possible careers in teaching, the practice of art, museum curatorship, arts administration or art librarianship, among others.
The entry level program is the Fine Arts major with a studio concentration providing an undergraduate formation in a studio weighted program within the context of a liberal arts education. The Major in Fine Arts–Studio Concentration requires a minimum of 48 departmental or cognate credits (16 courses) from three course groupings: Studio (27 FIS), Art History (15 FIH), and Comparative Arts (6 FIN). An honours degree in studio art is an option for students with superior academic records wishing to complete additional Fine Arts credits. An honours degree is recommended for those students wishing to apply to programs of graduate study.
