DescriptionThe BFA degree program encourages students to develop their personal creativity and teaches them multiple possibilities of expressing aesthetic, theoretical and cultural issues in their visual representations. Students can specialize in painting, sculpture, printmaking, drawing, or study a combination of these four disciplines. Courses in the history of art, design, and visual culture complement our studio programs and provide a lively intellectual cross-fertilization of theory and practice.

Possible Careers: Artist, Graphic Designer, Museum or Gallery Curator
