B.F.A. in Art
The B.F.A. degree prepares students to become professional artists, engage in professions in the arts or continue studies at the graduate level. The division offers instruction in an integrated studio environment in the following media: painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, video, ceramics and digital/hybrid media. Working across and between media is encouraged at every level.
First-year students intending to major in art should take ASAG 1300 Observation and ASAG 1304 Spaces in the fall, followed by ASAG 1308 Narrative and ASAG 1312 Systems in the spring, as the beginning of their B.F.A. studies.
To earn a B.F.A. (122 hours), the student is required to take a minimum of 66 hours in the Division of Art and 9 to 12 hours in the Division of Art History. All majors in art are strongly encouraged to enroll in the May term or summer term study of art at SMU-in-Taos in Fort Burgwin, New Mexico, in the May or summer after declaring their major.
*GEC students are required to complete a minimum of 125 term credit hours, and are exempt from three hours of Perspectives and an additional three hours of either Perspectives or Cultural Formations courses.
Note: All courses in studio art, except lectures and seminars, have a laboratory fee of $30 per credit hour, which is collected by the cashier at the time of enrollment.
