Bachelor of Fine Arts Program
All incoming undergraduate students are initially enrolled in the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science programs, depending on their interests. Refer to the Undergraduate Catalog (pdf) for more detailed information.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts program is a highly selective program oriented toward advanced professional study in the studio arts. Students in this program have additional opportunities to specialize in a studio art discipline in preparation for graduate study for the M.F.A., the terminal degree program in this field, and/or careers in professional art fields.
BFA students earn more credit hours in Art than other Bachelors students. They do more independent study and they have more one-on-one interaction with faculty.
Our BFA graduates are among the best prepared students in the nation for going on to graduate level study or for beginning their studio careers. In recent years our students have been accepted into some of the most prestigious and selective graduate art programs in the United States and several of our Junior BFA students were recently awarded full scholarships to the very competitive and prestigious Yale University Summer Art program.
