The BFA degree curriculum requirements include: General Education (51 units), Foundation prerequisites (27 units), BFA Major (54 units).
Admission to the BFA Major will be by portfolio review after completion of the Foundation prerequisites to the major. Students transferring from a community college may submit a portfolio for review and be admitted directly into the BFA program if they have completed courses equivalent to the Foundation prerequisites. Students also may apply while enrolled in the upper-division B.A. degree in Studio Art. A 3.0 grade point average in the Major must be achieved for eligibility in the program and maintained to continue in the program. If the grade point average in the Major drops below 3.0, the student will be reassigned to the B.A. degree in Studio Art program.
Please contact the Art Department for further information regarding the program and scheduling portfolio reviews.
All studio art courses in the major may be taken twice for credit.
