This school supervises the following degree programs: VISUAL STUDIES (leading to teacher certification), DESIGN COMMUNICATION, and STUDIO ART, Bachelor of Fine Arts; ART HISTORY, Bachelor of Arts; ART EDUCATION, Master of Art Education; ART, Master of Fine Arts; and FINE ARTS, Doctor of Philosophy with an option in Art. The school's degree programs are accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.

Mission Statement. The mission of the School of Art is to provide a stimulating and challenging environment in which students develop creative and scholarly potential, to support faculty members in the pursuit of excellence in teaching and research, to serve and lead public and professional constituencies, and to facilitate intercultural understandings through art.

Degree programs engage students in art through an examination of contemporary, historical, and cross-cultural issues, ideas, and actions in relation to multiple, diverse, and global visual cultures. The School of Art emphasizes exhibition opportunities, contemporary technologies, interdisciplinarity, and critical discourse. The school offers students the opportunity to minor in art history, studio art, or fine art photography. Nonmajors who desire experiences in the visual arts as part of their liberal education will find a selection of course offerings.

Transfer Students. The freshman and sophomore art curriculum is consistent with the art curriculum for higher education approved by the Coordinating Board. The School of Art at Texas Tech therefore respects the standard art core curriculum with regard to transfer credit. In some cases, a portfolio of previous work in art and a transcript of completed courses may be necessary for the purposes of advising and placement in the degree program.

Advanced Placement. Entering art majors may be considered for advanced placement in the freshman core program through the College Board Advanced Placement Program (AP) or the School of Art Portfolio Review. Art majors who score a 4 or 5 on the College Board Portfolio Exams in Drawing and/or General Studio will receive credit for the first drawing and/or design course (ART 1320, 1324). Students may also be considered for advanced placement by presenting a comprehensive portfolio of artwork to the School of Art Advanced Placement Review Committee. Advanced placement credit by portfolio examination is a service provided to students who declare a major in art. It is not intended for students minoring in art or seeking to fulfill a fine arts General Education requirement. Students who are awarded advanced placement through the College Board Advanced Placement Program (AP) or School of Art examination may earn 6 hours of college credit. Entering art majors who receive a 4 or 5 on the College Board Advanced Placement Program in Art History will be exempt from taking ART 1310 and 1311. Majors who receive AP Art History credit must take three upper-level art history courses. Further information may be obtained by writing or calling the school.

Individualized Programs. Through a unified foundations program the School of Art prepares students to develop increasingly specialized and diverse courses of study. No grade below C is accepted for transfer credit in majors, minors, or specializations. Most upperlevel art courses are repeatable for credit and allow for individualized instruction.

Studio Art Centers International (SACI). Texas Tech University's association with SACI offers students the opportunity to study studio art, art history, and Italian language in the heart of Florence, Italy. Year-long or summer study opportunities take full advantage of the rich past of Florence, its artistic resources, cultural offerings, and SACI's premier art facility and faculty. SACI is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).

School Residency Requirements. Students working toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in visual studies, design communication, or studio art must complete a minimum of 30 hours of art in residence of which 24 must be upper division. Students working toward a Bachelor of Arts degree in art history must complete at least 12 hours of upper division art history courses for the major. At least 6 hours of upper division art courses must be taken in residence for all minors in this school.

Correspondence Courses. Major or minor courses may not be taken by correspondence.

Writing Intensive Requirement. Six hours of the major must be in writing intensive courses. Students may satisfy this requirement by completing art history courses numbered 3000 or above (except 3312) and designated studio and/or design courses.

Hours applied to the minor area of study may not include courses used to fulfill requirements in the student's major. These courses, however, may make the student eligible, immediately, for upper division courses throughout the 18-21 hours of the art minor. The area of design communication does not offer a minor. Some specific tracks for a minor in art are as follows.

Art History Minor. Students working toward an art history minor must complete a minimum of 18 hours which include ART 1310, 1311, and 3312.

Visual Studies Major, B.F.A. Degree. The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Studies (leading to art teacher certification) prepares graduates to teach critical reflection and creative visual expression in multiple settings (schools, museums, community, and regional art programs), assume community and state leadership roles within the field of art education, and innovate curricular content based on contemporary cultural developments and community needs. The curriculum critically responds to mainstream, "fine art," popular, mass media, and other normalized images. Course work emphasizes contemporary theories and issues in art and education, such as contemporary art, intercultural issues, community activism, instructional technology, critical pedagogy, alternative resources, and dynamic teaching.

The B.F.A. degree with a visual studies major requires 73 semester hours of art and art history, 18 semester hours of professional education, and 46-62 semester hours of General requirements as stipulated by the College of Arts and Sciences. The minimum number of hours required for the visual studies major (leading to teacher certification) is a total of 137 credit hours. A minimum of 40 credit hours of junior and senior level courses are required for graduation.
