Art is a form of communication that reaches people in a visceral way that bypasses stereotypes and embraces humanity, making it possible to have open conversations about difficult issues. Our Bachelor of Fine Art program is a comprehensive, professional degree for the studio art major that brings together research, exploration, and experimentation. Students who are drawn to this major enjoy being challenged and are ready to grow beyond their comfort zone. They are independent and curious and have a passion for learning.
As a student working towards your BFA in studio art, you will explore a variety of mediums and learn from experts in their craft. You will look back upon global art throughout the ages, different forms of visual communication, and its impact on society. Your studio experiences will help you gain the fundamental knowledge and mastery of process necessary to communicate meaning in a work of art. You’ll develop your own unique voice through interdisciplinary study, project implementation, and hands-on practice that combines technical and conceptual learning. Because of our 15 to 1 student to faculty ratio, you will receive individualized instruction in the classroom and the benefits of solid mentorship from our faculty.
