Printmaking, B.F.A.

About the Program

National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) Accredited

All freshman and transfer students are welcomed into the BFA program.

Each B.F.A. student will be required to mount an individual exhibition of his or her work. It will be planned and installed with the advice of the student’s faculty adviser, but no grade is assigned. The Art and Design Department reserves the right to retain students’ artwork for official purposes, such as exhibits, catalogs, or teaching aids.

Admission Requirements

Admission to the B.F.A. program is open. Newly declared majors need to schedule a meeting with their new advisor in the major to review their work and become familiarized with the program's requirements.

Students are expected to assume the costs of materials they use in their courses. All studio courses may have an additional instructional charge for materials used in class. Students enrolled in a studio course are expected to work a minimum of two additional hours each week outside of class for each credit granted for that class.
