Program changes in College of Arts and Sciences
In accordance with university policy, notification is given of approved changes in the following programs in the College of Arts and Sciences.

Art Major Programs
From: Pages 68-69 of the 2003-04 University Catalogue.
To: Add new procedures for Admission to Art & Design Programs:
All students desiring to be Art majors enter the department’s programs and courses as 36-credit Art: Liberal Arts majors (Code 020-201). Students who wish to remain in this major do not have to take the Foundations Review, but may do so as an advisory procedure. All applicants for admission to the comprehensive majors must satisfactorily complete the Foundations Review and be granted acceptance into the particular major and selected area of emphasis. This includes the comprehensive majors associated with the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree options (56-credit Comprehensive Teaching Art Major and 60-credit Comprehensive Art Major), as well as the minimum 74-credit Comprehensive Major associated with the Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree.

The Foundations Review is administered once each semester by the department of Art & Design. Typically, a student takes the Foundations Review in the same semester in which the student will complete the Art Foundations studio course sequence (Art 107, 108, 109, 110). The review consists of students presenting a prescribed portfolio of works produced in the four Art Foundations studio courses. At the completion of the review, Art & Design faculty assign an objective score to each applicant's portfolio according to the competency criteria defined by the Review Evaluation Form. These scores result in a ranking of applicants. In certain areas of emphasis, competition for the limited seats available in courses is high, and thus a quantitative cutoff is imposed allowing only a finite number of students to be approved for acceptance. This quantitative cut-off ensures timely completion to degree for students.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is a nationally recognized degree with high standards for excellence in art and design. Applicants for the BFA degree must meet a higher standard of competence and ability as adjudged by Department of Art & Design faculty. Students seeking the BFA degree must enter with and maintain a 3.0 GPA in Art and ArtH courses to graduate in this degree program. Go to top of page
