Studio Art B.A.


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Degree

TOTAL DEGREE HOURS: 120

This degree is designed to develop the student’s consciousness of aesthetic and ideological aspects of art and its relationship to
life. The degree also assists students in the realization of personal ideas, art making skills and imagery. The BA is oriented
toward a general and broad immersion in the field. Studio courses are supplemented with studies in art history, foreign language and an abundance of electives both within the School of Art and Art History and throughout the campus. While the BA in Studio Art is not usually the preferred preparation for moving on to the Master of Fine Arts degree, it is quite appropriate for seeking other advanced degrees, especially in the Liberal Arts or other similar programs.

University Admissions


Admission to the University is based on the University’s Undergraduate Admission Requirements that may be found by clicking on the following urls:

State Mandated Common Course Prerequisites

Transfer students are also required to comply with the immunization, foreign language, and continuous enrollment policies of the university.

Students should complete the following prerequisite courses at the lower level prior to entering the university. If these courses are not taken at a Florida College System institution, they must be completed before the degree is granted.

Unless stated otherwise, a grade of C is the minimum acceptable grade in prerequisite courses.
