SECTION 4: Program and Graduation Requirements - 4.1 Bachelor of Fine Arts Studio Programs 4.1 Bachelor of Fine Arts Studio Programs

The School of Art offers degrees that cover the history, theory, and techniques of art. Students may also take elective courses outside the School of Art. These programs provide a general cultural background as well as the technical education necessary to become an educator, or a professional creative artist in fine art or applied fields. The programs reflect the assumption that in a time of fluctuating cultural values, technical training alone is not sufficient for significant work in any branch of the arts.

The first two years offer basic instruction in the fundamental principles of drawing, design and representation. In the fine arts studio electives in second year, the student selects courses that provide specialization in one or more of the following: ceramics, drawing, graphic design, painting, photography, print media, sculpture and video.

The School of Art offers a General and an Honours Degree Program in Studio. In order to be transferred from the General Degree to the Honours Degree Programs, a student must have completed 63 credit hours and have a minimum grade point average of 2.5 (C). The Student Advisor will be able to transfer the student from General to Honours.

In order to be eligible to do the final fourth year Honours year (the Senior Studio and Honours Seminar courses), students in the Honours Degree must have completed 15 credit hours of Studio courses at the 3000 level and have successfully passed a minimum of 94 credit hours.

The school reserves the right to retain temporarily or permanently any work done by students in fulfilment of course requirements.
