BFA in studio art

The BFA in Studio Arts is a more indepth degree intended for motivated students interested in and committed to pursuing a professional career in the arts. Students accepted into the BFA program take 63 major credits hours and 53 non-major credits hours. Students gain training in studio techniques and post-studio practice, an overview of historical and contemporary artists and movements, and an introduction to criticism. Additionally, students participate in the BFA Seminar, are eligible to enroll in the Visiting Artist Seminar, and present work in the culminating BFA exhibition.

This is a highly selective program. Only art majors may apply to the program with a portfolio and application materials, which are reviewed once in the fall and once in the spring. For application information, please contact Erich Heppner  at (303) 492-3580 or stop by the front office, room 330 in the VAC to pick up an application.
