The School of Art + Design Faculty sees the switch to a semester system as an opportunity to redesign and introduce a more current and efficient program. The result is an interdisciplinary Foundations Program for first year studio students, a BFA in Studio Art that allows for increased interdisciplinary opportunities, with concentrations in Ceramics, Painting + Drawing, Photography + Integrated Media, Printmaking, or Sculpture + Expanded Practice, and updated BA in Art History and Studio Art, BFA in Graphic Design, and BFA in Interior Architecture. We believe these changes will:


• Sustain a cohesive studio engaged community in the School of Art + Design

• Maintain a studio program and curriculum that reflects the contemporary field of Studio Art practice

• Support a program of national prominence in the training of studio artists

• Meet the demands and expectations of professionalism as students matriculate

• Address inter-disciplinary and multi-disciplinary student interests while maintaining traditional discipline options
