Department of Art

Professor Melody Weiler, Chairperson.

Professors Dingus, Dixon, Gibbons, Kreneck, Morrow, and Waters; Associate Professors Bagley, Fehr, Fuentes, Glover, J. Hanna, Reed, Slagle, Steele, and Stinespring; Assistant Professors Check, Germany, Granados, Keifer-Boyd, Lloyd, Martin, and Tate; Part-time Instructors Beadles, Campbell, Grace, Hartsfield, and Rasberry; Visiting Assistant Professor Fitzgerald.

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

Degree programs within the department combine professional development in the visual arts with a strong liberal education. Student exhibition opportunities and computer technology are important considerations in Art, Design Communication, and Studio Art programs. The department 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.

The freshman and sophomore art curriculum is consistent with the art curriculum for higher education approved by the Coordinating Board. The Department 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.

Entering freshman art majors may be considered for advanced placement in the freshman core program through the College Board Advanced Placement Program (AP) or the Department 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 Department of Art Advanced Placement Review Committee. Advanced placement credit by departmental 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 departmental examination may earn 6 hours of college credit. Art History Survey courses, ART 1310 and 1311, will be waived for entering freshman art majors who receive a 4 or 5 on the College Board Advanced Placement Program in Art History. Students will be awarded 3 hours of credit. Further information may be obtained by writing or calling the department.

Credits for a course in which a grade of D is earned may not be applied toward fulfilling the major or minor requirements. Most upper-level art courses are repeatable for credit and allow for individualized instruction.

Department Residency Requirements. Students working toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in art, 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 department.

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 two art history courses numbered 3000 or above.

Students pursuing the BFA in Studio and Design Communication may satisfy this requirement by completing four courses from the following list: ART 2325, 2327, 2328, 2330, 2334, 2338, 2355, 3326, 3327, 3328, 3330, 3333, 3334, 3338, 3355, 3362, 4326, 4328, 4330, 4334, and 4338.

Art Minors. Students working toward any minor in art must complete a minimum of 18-21 semester hours, which must include 6 hours of junior and senior level courses. Hours applied to the minor area of study may not include courses used to fulfill requirements in the student's major.
