In addition to fulfilling the Core Curriculum requirements, students pursuing the BFA in Studio Art will complete the art foundations courses and select an concentration from the following areas:  Ceramics; Experimental Studies; Painting; Photography; or Sculpture. There is no minor area of concentration in the BFA degree. Students are advised to enroll each semester in no more than 2-3 courses from the Core Curriculum and 2-3 courses in art.  Studio art courses normally meet for 5-6 hours per week, so it is important not to over-schedule these classes.  While in some degrees it may be wise to complete the Core Curriculum requirements before enrolling in advanced courses in the major, the best strategy in pursuing a BFA is to distribute Core Curriculum and art courses equally over the 4-5 years it takes to complete the degree.
