Students can pursue the General Art Major in the form of a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. Unlike the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, which is recommended for students interested in pursuing graduate school and/or careers in art, the General Art Major allows for more breadth. It allows for the study of art within a liberal arts education. It has the same foundation and distribution requirements as the BFA degrees; however, it requires 12 hours of elective classes as opposed to the BFA’s 26-27 area concentration classes. The General Art Major does not require the 3-6 hours of capstone courses. It requires 12 hours of art history instead of the 16 required for the BFA. In lieu of the additional hours in art the General Art Major requires a minor. The minor may not be in art, art teaching, or photography. Students who have graduated with this degree have pursued careers in art such as a gallery preparator, or have continued their studies in a non-art related field such as law or medicine.
