Ne öğreneceğim?

Students wishing to major in Art Studio have a choice of two undergraduate degrees. The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree is for those who wish to create a broad foundation based on the tradition of a liberal arts education, suitable for many possible career paths. The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree offers a more specialized curriculum, which is especially useful for those students seeking specific careers as professional artists, designers, and for graduate studies in the visual arts.

Major Requirements

All incoming Art Studio majors undertake a prescribed sequence of courses in our Foundations Program. Students will also complete 30 hours of UK Core. The College of Fine Arts additionally requires that all majors complete 6 hours of coursework outside their departments but within the College of Fine Arts, and at least 39 hours of courses at or above the 300-level.

Bachelor of Arts (BA) Overview

The BA degree in Art Studio provides a broad-based, liberal arts-based education that has proven useful for our graduates who have developed successful careers outside the traditional visual arts fields. We encourage students to take a broad range of courses, in such disciplines as English, Film Studies, History, Arts Administration, and Business Administration. In addition, studio majors have the option of focusing on a single medium or combination of media within Art Studio, including areas that have extensive non-art applications, such as digital media, where students master such proprietary software as Photoshop™ and Final Cut Pro™. Before graduation, students in the BA program exhibit their work in a group show in the Gallery of the School of Art & Visual Studies Building.

Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) Overview

The BFA program allows for development of studio practice at a more focused, sophisticated and pre-professional level. This degree is available to students who demonstrate special abilities through a BFA portfolio review, during which the student will present his or her work to a faculty jury. Students will be considered for admission based on their advanced level of study, their current proposed direction, and strong evidence that they can succeed in creating a coherent body of work for a solo exhibition. Students will be present during the review to answer questions regarding formal, technical and conceptual elements of their work. In addition to the in-person review, students will submit an artist’s statement and documentation of work presented during the review. Besides additional studio coursework, BFA students are required to create a solo exhibition during their senior year.
