Susan Weisend, Professor and Chair
The curriculum prepares students for graduate study in art and for careers as professional artists. Art majors are required to take at least two of the six introductory courses before taking classes above level 2. All classes meet twice a week.
Requirements for Honors in Art and Art Education
Any art major receiving either the B.A. or B.F.A. in art or the B.A. in art education wishing to pursue honors in art should submit a written proposal to the chair of the department before the end of the first semester of the student’s senior year. This proposal should include a request for a faculty sponsor who will work with the applicant in an advisory capacity. Honors awards will be based on three criteria: a full faculty review of the applicant’s portfolio, an oral presentation of the concepts and methodologies that are the basis for the production of the portfolio, and the applicant’s GPA. The portfolio should represent a body of work (e.g., solo exhibition or presentation). Portfolio presentations must be scheduled by the student to take place during the second semester of the senior year. In order to receive honors, the applicant must have a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher.
