About the Program
Studio Art, BFA
The Bachelor of Fine Arts, or BFA, in Studio Art is a pre-professional degree program that prepares students for advanced study as professional fine artists. Because the BFA is an artist's professional degree, students graduating with a BFA or Bachelor of Fine Arts will complete a course load that's two-thirds visual arts classes.
Students may specialize in:
- Graphic design
- Painting & Drawing
- Print Media, including Book Arts
The BFA is especially recommended for students wishing to continue their visual arts education at the graduate level.
