Undergraduate Programs


The School of Art offers two undergraduate programs leading to degrees: Bachelor of Arts, and Bachelor of Fine Arts. 

Freshman Foundations

The Foundations program borrows from intensive, art school Foundations formats, while leaving room for students to pursue general core requirements. Students attend class two days a week (Monday/Wednesday or Tuesday/Thursday), and on Thursday evenings attend lectures and other activities.

Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA)

The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program is designed to offer students a more specialized program of study. Because there is a greater emphasis on art courses than in the BA program, the student graduates with a more intensive studio background.
