Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts

All undergraduate students in the Visual Arts department begin with the same Foundation Studio curriculum, designed to familiarize them with core concepts and basic skills in preparation for a rigorous studio practice. The course's emphasis is on the study of drawing, color, and composition as well as time and screen-based contemporary art practices. Students on the BA track then pursue more liberal arts requirements within the wider university rather than declare an area of concentration with upper level studio courses in Visual Arts.

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts

BFA students may come to study in the department before deciding on a specific visual arts concentration. They can take a year (or even almost two) to explore different disciplines before choosing their degree (BFA in Visual Arts or BFA in Design) and before choosing their concentration (drawing, design, media, painting, photography, print, sculpture) at the end of their sophomore year.
