Departmental Information
The Department of Art and Design promotes the study and practice of visual culture. Our faculty facilitates liberal learning and academic excellence to enable our students to assume their respective roles as practitioners, educators, and informed patrons of the visual arts. Degrees are offered in studio art and graphic design with allied course offerings in art history. We also offer minors in studio art and design and in art history.

Admission Requirements
All new Art and Design majors begin as a BA in Art major. The department offers advising for a Studio Art track and a Graphic Design track.

Students enrolled in the BA in Art may choose to submit an application for entrance into the BFA program during their Junior year.

Prerequisite courses can be taken before entrance into the program, and Freshman and Sophomores are recommended to enroll in the BA Studio Art Track program so they can be assigned an advisor and discuss program options.

Admittance to the BFA Graphic Design program occurs at the beginning of your Junior year, and is contingent upon grade-point average, and the completion of prerequisite graphic design courses. Students must have a 3.0 GPA in all Art and Design classes. Prerequisite courses can be taken before entrance into the program, and Freshman and Sophomores are recommended to enroll in the BA Graphic Design Track program so they can be assigned an advisor and discuss program options.
