Studio Art

Students pursuing degrees in studio art have many options once they graduate, but most seek careers as professional artists or designers.

The Bachelor of Arts degree provides a well-rounded liberal arts education along with an art major. The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in studio art is geared toward students serious about becoming professional artists or pursuing graduate-level study. The BFA offers options in graphic design, drawing, printmaking, ceramics, painting, 3-D studies, and photography. The Master of Arts degree allows students to create their own works of art and broaden their knowledge of art, ceramics, painting, 3-D studies, and photography. Completion of the MFA affirms a candidate's mastery in studio production.  MA and MFA students are offered Studio Art degrees with the following emphasis: 3-D Studies, Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Photography, and Printmaking.  The Graduate programs currently do not offer a emphasis in Graphic Design.
