The Bachelor of Arts in Art program provides students with a broad groundwork in the arts, and students then select an area of concentration: studio art or teaching/art education. Students should decide on an area of concentration by their sophomore year and notify their advisor.

The studio art concentration provides a solid foundation for those who wish to seek graduate-level training. Areas of emphasis include: ceramics, crafts, drawing and painting, graphic design, interdisciplinary, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. 

The teaching/art education concentration is for those planning to teach art at the secondary level in a public or private school. This concentration prepares students for positions ranging from specialist in art at the K-12 level to teaching in the single subject track at the 7-12 level. This concentration comprises professional course requirements completed through practical classroom application, field experience, and service-learning, and also allows students to concentrate in a specific area of interest.
