Studio Art focuses on the development of students' personal artistic expression and technical skills in both traditional and experimental art techniques. In addition, students will gain an understanding of and appreciation for their artistic heritage while developing their awareness of the work of contemporary visual artists. University Core Curriculum requirements ensure that the graduates are instructed in a well-rounded course of academic study. This degree prepares students for careers in the studio arts as well as graduate study.

All Freshman and Transfer art students are accepted into the School of Art as an incoming student (ARTI). Application procedures for each degree program will be explained in the ART 1100 class and by the School of Art Senior Academic Advisor

During annual SoA Degree Declaration Events any student interested in a BFA degree in Art: Studio will submit their declaration of major form, a portfolio of 5 to 10 images and/or conduct a short interview to describe their interest in their chosen area of emphasis: Ceramics, Jewelry Design and Metalsmithing, Painting, Printmaking, Art Photography, Sculpture or Transmedia. (Note: In 2024 Art Photography & Transmedia will merge to form: Digital Narrative Arts. The same options from Animation classes to Photo dark room classes will still be available under this combined emphasis.) The emphasis areas will evaluate materials submitted by students and accept or reject them into the emphasis. Student may reapply or later resubmit to change their emphasis.
