The Department of Art offers the Bachelor of Arts, BA, and the Bachelor of Fine Arts, BFA, in Studio Art. The BA in Studio Art requires 48 credits in Studio Art and 15 credits in Art History. The BA does not require a portfolio review for admission. The BFA in Studio Art requires 66 credits in Studio Art and 15 credits in Art History. The BFA requires a portfolio review for admission. The BFA in Studio Art provides the breadth and depth necessary for a liberal arts based professional degree.

The emphasis of the Studio Art program is creative work in the areas of drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and digital art. Elective studio work is available in photography, graphic design, and ceramics. The study of Art History is seen as necessary to intelligent studio development, as is the socializing of the student to attitudes, philosophies, and language of the contemporary art world. Most studio courses require that the student purchase a basic supply of necessary tools, equipment and supplies.

Studio degrees can lead to (1) specialized work as an artist in one of the fine art areas, (2) graduate study in studio art, (3) art related jobs in government, industry and commerce involving digital art, web design, commercial art and design, and other skills.
