Senior Studio is the capstone course for students in the Studio Art B.F.A. Program. Students prepare a coherent body of studio work under faculty supervision, culminating in an exhibition. Students also prepare a written document; thesis, catalog or other written forms relevant to the individual’s studio practice. Students also participate in group critiques. The course extends over two semesters for a total of 6 credits at a maximum of 3H, 3C per semester. Senior standing and consent of department head required.
Graduates of the Studio Art program apply their creative skills in a variety of careers. Some become professional artists, exhibiting at national galleries and museums, or pursue commercial careers in photography, painting, illustration, and sculpture. Others seek their Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) in specific studio disciplines or post-graduate degrees in related arts fields such as Material Culture, Art Therapy, Art Education, Exhibition Design, and Art Conservation. Our alumni have gone on to become professional artists, university professors, K-12 teachers, and pursue careers in galleries and museums.
