Senior 2009 Introduction
graphic, left bracket The Art Department awards two art studio degrees: the B.F.A. and the B.A. The B.F.A. is an intensive professional degree that prepares students for careers in art or graduate study in fine arts or graphic design. The B.A. degree permits students to combine in-depth study in studio art with broader liberal studies, a second major, or a minor. Every art major elects at least one studio area of concentration with a focus on building a mature level of creative expression.
