Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art

The Bachelor of Fine Arts is a professional degree program that provides a more intensive course of study than the traditional Bachelor of Arts. Students will be prepared to become professional visual artists, enter a specific art field or continue their education at the graduate level. It provides a well-rounded knowledge of art history, extensive training in a variety of studio areas, and encourages specialization within the field. Faculty members work closely with students to develop their technical and conceptual abilities, and to guide them through developing a professional portfolio. Faculty also serve as an entry point into professional practice and, if studnets intend to pursue graduate studies, guide them through the application process. Students are expected to participate in the art community through internships, events and organizations like the Mobile Arts Council.
