Bachelor of Arts in Art
All students wishing to major in the Department of Fine Arts specializing in studio art must complete and submit a separate “Application for Admission” to the department. Admission is selective and enrollments may be limited. Studio art courses may be restricted to majors only. Enrolled University of Louisville students may obtain an application and apply through the department’s offices. Incoming and transfer students must be accepted by the University first, and then apply for admission to the department. Students are expected to meet the minimum overall grade point standards for the College of Arts & Sciences. In addition, a grade of “D” in any department course at the 300 level or above may not be used to fulfill a departmental requirement.
Completion of this degree requires work to be submitted for the department’s Learning Outcomes Measurement. For details, contact the department.
All degrees require the completion of the University-wide General Education Program; see the General Education requirements and the courses that fulfill them. Some General Education requirements may be met in the requirements for the major or supporting coursework, in which case additional electives may be required to complete the minimum hours for the degree.
