B.A. in Art

The B.A. in art is designed to offer students a degree in art that allows time for significant study in another discipline as well. This makes room for double majors and extensive study in the humanities or sciences or other degree programs. The B.A. degree gives students with varied interests in university study a sound footing in visual, tactile and conceptual capabilities, historical and cultural knowledge and a range of theoretical and analytical bases for making art. To earn a B.A. (122 hours), the student is required to take a minimum of 48 hours in the Division of Art and nine to 12 hours in the Division of Art History.

Students may choose the B.A. degree in art upon the completion of ASAG 1300 Observation and ASAG 1304 Spaces or their equivalent.
