Course info


Areas of Study

Painting and drawing, sculpture, photography, ceramics, new genres, and interdisciplinary studio. There are no limits to the variations, extent, or value of these designations.

A minimum of 72 units in the department in upper-division and graduate level courses is required, with a B average or better. Within those 72 units, a minimum of 40 quarter units in the 200 series must be taken, including at least four units (one course) per academic year of Art 276 until completion of the degree, a minimum of 24 quarter units in the field of specialization, and eight units of Art C280.

A minimum total of 12 quarter units of art history and an additional 28 quarter units of art history or history, theory and criticism course work offered by related departments such as architecture and urban design, comparative literature, design media arts, film, television, and digital media, and world arts and cultures in undergraduate or graduate study are also required (including Art C280). Studio-based courses cannot count as substitutions for this requirement. Art history and theory and criticism courses completed as an undergraduate count toward fulfilling the department's combined 40-unit art history requirement but do not count toward the 72 units required for the degree. Students with few or no art history or theory or criticism courses in undergraduate study may take art history or theory or criticism upper division or graduate courses at UCLA as electives to be counted toward the 40-unit art history requirement and toward the total units required for the degree.
