BFA: Visual Art
The Visual Art Emphasis is recommended for students who wish to become professional artists, illustrators, craftsmen or art teachers on a college level. It is the first step toward acceptance into an MFA program, which is the necessary degree for pursuing a teaching position at the college level. It is also the first step toward acceptance in an MA program in Art Therapy. After an exploratory period students will be encouraged to concentrate the majority of their credits in a single area: painting, ceramics or printmaking. At least 18 credits in one area are recommended in order to achieve a professional portfolio of work and senior exhibition.
