The Bachelor of Arts degree in Studio Arts provides a broad foundation in fundamental techniques and concepts and permits each individual to experience the possibilities of creative expression and to develop an understanding of art as a key to cultural awareness.

The Studio Arts program features a small faculty to student ratio, with 13 full-time faculty and 30 part-time faculty each semester. The department is popular and actively engaged with the entire campus, with approximately 1,100 students enrolled in required major and art elective courses each semester.

Our Studio Arts classes are small, averaging 12-16 students per class. Each studio arts major or minor is assigned a faculty advisor in their area of study who can be consulted about what courses to take and when to take them.
