  • Course description
    Requirements for the Major The art major requires a minimum of 31 credits in art with 25 credits at the 200-level or above. Students may take a maximum of 60 credits, including 100-level courses. Studio Art Concentration The studio art concentration first gives students a foundation in design and drawing, and then requires them to develop depth and proficiency in one medium: painting, printmaking, photography, ceramics or ceramic sculpture. Faculty works closely with students, offering individual attention at all levels. To strengthen their depth of study, students choose one or more electives outside the focus area. The concentration can lead to graduate study (Master of Fine Art) or to a career in fine and applied art. Students may also double major, combining a concentration in studio art with another field. With mathematics, it forms an excellent basis for graduate work in architecture; with psychology, for work in art therapy; with biology, for a career in medical illustration; and with economics or management, for graduate work in arts administration, etc.
