The BFA degree program permits a student to take a greater number of concentrations in studio art and art history. The program incorporates both a major and minor in the field of art. Students who wish to fulfill the requirements for the BFA in eight semesters must enter the program at the beginning of the freshman year; full admission to the program is granted only upon successful completion of the BFA review.
