The bachelor of fine arts is regarded as the initial professional degree in art by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Its primary emphasis is on the development of skills, concepts, and sensitivities important to the professional artist. Concentration in a major professional area begins only with satisfactory completion of the foundation requirements and the approval of the faculty adviser.
* Students must maintain a grade of C in all ART and ARH courses within the major (required and elective).
