The Department of Art and Art History offers merit-based awards for undergraduate and graduate students that are made possible through the generosity of our donors. Typically, the funds associated with these awards defray tuition expenses and are posted to the student's bill. A faculty committee reviews the applications each spring semester and determines the number and amount of awards. Scholarships vary from $500 – $2,000.
The BFA degree in Art Practices is a more specialized degree in studio art. It allows you to take a higher number of courses through the Art & Art History Department. Choose this degree if you want to create a personal portfolio, attend graduate school, want a career directly related to the arts, or are interested in pursuing a teaching career at the college level.
Requirements include 63 credits of ARTS & ARTH coursework, passing a BFA Portfolio review, completing lower division required courses, taking the BFA Seminar class and a recommended GPA of 3.0 within Art & Art History.
