Requirements

Students earning the BASA with K-12 certification can earn the dual degree of BFA with Two Dimensional Arts or Three Dimensional Arts concentration.

In addition to fulfilling the requirements for the BASA with K-12 certification, the dual degree of BFA with Two Dimensional Arts or Three Dimensional Arts concentration requires the student to apply to the BFA program (see the Department website or a Department advisor for details).  Once accepted into the BFA Program, students must successfully complete the following BFA sequence of courses:

Once a student enters the BFA program, they are carefully monitored to remain focused on their skillset and artwork. If a student fails a BFA semester, they must retake that semester and may not advance to the next BFA level until they have mastered the previous course.

Occasionally a professor may request a student to take an additional semester of BFA (BFA III or ART 4340) before entering their Thesis semester. This additional semester gives the student an opportunity to enhance their growth and development prior to their Thesis semester. This additional semester would add 3 additional hours to the BFA sequence.
