The Art Department offers Bachelor of Arts degrees in Art and Art History and the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Teaching in the studio areas of art is adapted to individual needs and abilities. If a student wants to take studio art courses for graduate credit, he/she must obtain written permission from the art faculty before registering. An evaluation of the student’s creative work will be required before such permission is given. All studio courses in art beyond the fourth course may be credited at the 300- or 400-level for art majors.
