B.A.A. degree

Major Map

Admission Requirements, Retention & Termination Standards

This art major consists of 57 semester hours arranged in consultation with a department advisor. Students must have an overall grade point average of 2.3 for all art courses counted toward the major. Because Core Courses I comprise a foundation of courses that form the basis for all successive courses in the major, it is expected that students complete ART 106, ART 117, ART 119, and ART 125 before enrolling in any 300+ studio course. It is mandatory that all Art Majors register for and complete fours semesters of ART 096. Students should seek advising assistance from the department upon arrival at the university and should select a major advisor.

As part of ART 125, a digital portfolio will be created and reviewed by faculty for feedback.

Courses taken on a credit/no credit basis, except for ART 096, may not be counted toward fulfillment of requirements for the art major or minor.
