What will I learn?

The B.F.A. in integrative studio practices (fine arts) is a professional undergraduate degree for students who wish to develop expertise in multiple art media and to make artwork that integrates media and crosses traditional boundaries. Students develop critical thinking skills and refine their intellectual and creative processes. The program provides a solid foundation for students pursuing graduate studies or a studio art career and for students wanting to build on their creative training through further professional and/or academic experiences.

Students who pursue a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Integrative Studio Practice have the flexibility to study with a dual emphasis in the areas that interest them most. These highly individual and tailored degrees allow artists to create works that incorporate elements from more than one discipline and develop critical thinking skills, refine their intellectual and creative processes, and learn both traditional and contemporary aspects of artistic practice. A wide range of studies, careful counseling, and individual goal setting help students achieve their objectives.
