The department seeks to present an integrated and comprehensive introduction to studio art, including art history, criticism and theory. Programs provide intensive professional training for students interested in a career in the field of art. Students may choose any of several areas and, with faculty guidance, construct an individual program fitted to particular objectives. Degree options for the B.A., B.F.A., M.A., and M.F.A. degrees are in Sculpture, Ceramics, Printmaking, Photography, Painting and Drawing, and Art History (M.A. only). Courses in art criticism are included in the program. The curriculum also includes courses that prepare students for certification in teaching art K-12. Advanced Placement Policy Undergraduate students wishing to challenge foundations courses for advanced placement must adhere to the following. Students can only try to challenge the foundations courses (Art 123A, Drawing,; 125A, 2-D Foundations; 135A, 3-D Foundations). Students who have taken AP exams still must submit a portfolio to challenge art classes. Portfolios are reviewed the two weeks prior to registration for each semester by a committee of representative faculty from the 2-D and 3-D areas. Two weeks prior to the semester students may submit a portfolio of eight to ten slides or pieces of actual work to the department office. If challenging more than one course, students need eight to ten works in each area, for example: 8-10 drawing samples for 123A, 8-10 color works for 125A, and 8-10 3-D pieces for 135A. Submission of work does not guarantee advanced placement. Students with transfer credits from another institution must contact the chair of the department for review of transfer transcripts to make an advanced placement assessment.
