All Art majors must first declare a Major in General Art (program of study - see Enrollment Services and Information) with the department secretary. Once the five Foundation courses have been completed with a minimum grade of B- in each, students schedule a mandatory advising meeting with the department chair to declare their BFA major in one of the five studio areas of emphasis. After admittance, students plan their studio elective classes in consultation with the department chair and a faculty advisor from the chosen emphasis area.
Students who select the Art Education emphasis must satisfy the Teacher Education admission and licensure requirements (see Teacher Education department).
