BA in Art with a Concentration in Fine Art Studio

Degree Requirements

The Fine Art Studio concentration (FASC) track provides an opportunity within the liberal arts framework for students to develop skills, experiential practice and multicultural understanding of studio arts with a fine arts focus. A wide variety of courses are offered including basic art skills such as Drawing and Two-Dimensional Design, traditional art history surveys and upper-level Studio Art courses in Painting, Printmaking, Photography, Ceramics, Digital Art and Fiber Arts.

The BA in Fine Art concentration track culminates in an interdisciplinary year-long Senior Capstone experience. The first semester of the senior year involves working closely with a professor and members of the Art Faculty to research and develop skills and ideas for a Senior Thesis Exhibition. The second semester of the senior year is focused on creating a body of original artwork and mounting a Senior Thesis Exhibition for public presentation.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Additional Information for Art Majors:
The Art Department's "Visiting Artist" series as well as our regular Exhibitions of renowned Artists in our various Galleries expose Art Majors to current trends in regional, national and international art. Students can work "one-on-one" with internationally-renowned, art "professionals" (such  as artists, curators, art historians and critics) to gain feedback and to make valuable contacts.

The Art Department encourages Art Majors to include at least one summer semester to Study Abroad (recommended-not required) in Montepulciano (Italy), Madrid (Spain), Paris, Bahamas, etc. (Scholarships and other funding sources are available.)
