Plan of Study

Fine Arts Courses

The Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts is a 44-hour program of study on top of the General Education Requirements for Arts & Sciences.

Core

  • 12 hours of Art History (no more than 6 hours at the 100 level)
  • 9 hours of fundamental studio courses at the 100 level

Senior Capstone experience

The purpose of the senior capstone experience is to provide students with opportunities to demonstrate that they have mastered a depth of knowledge in the major, that they can integrate knowledge within their creative endeavors, and that they are able to communicate coherently.  The capstone experience is made up of the following:

  • An individual exhibition of the student's representative work reflecting the program goals.
