Requirements

Major and Minor in Art

Students majoring in art choose between three tracks: art history, new media art and design, or studio art. Regardless of track, courses taken with the Pass-NoPass option may not count towards any major or minor in Art and Art History.

The junior-level review is intended to place students on a track towards professional and/or academic success and ensures a clear pathway towards the student’s final portfolio review.

The graduating senior will have a final portfolio review in the semester they intend to graduate. Students at this point in their studies will be required to have a CV and a portfolio suitable for future endeavors in professional fields or graduate studies.

Tenured and Tenure-Track Faculty will collectively review portfolios submitted by students and assign a Pass/NoPass grade. Students will have to receive grades of 'Pass' in both portfolio reviews before they receive their degrees.

Exceptional students may choose to undertake a Senior Thesis in Studio Art, Art 494, directed by a member of the faculty.

Capstone Course (1)

  • Art 480 Senior Seminar in Studio Art

Students in the New Media Art and Design track will be required to take ART 480 alongside students in the Studio Art track. In planning this curriculum, the department wants cross-pollination of ideas and a development of a sense of community amongst all our majors. This course encourages students to create focus and clarity in their art as well as look at the whole of their art and design trajectory both through studio practice and the development of a portfolio.

There is no minor available in Art: New Media Art and Design.  Students interested are encouraged to seek either a Minor in Art: Studio Art or a Minor in Digital Media Design.

Recommended Courses for New Media Art and Design Track 

We have contacted department chairs throughout the college to receive their input on having a list of courses that would add substantially to the trajectory of an New Media Art and Design student. The materials and subjects of these courses are relevant in the pursuit and understanding of interdisciplinarity and collaboration in academic fields and professional settings. These are not part of the tracks however we want to encourage students to build solid connections between our field and the substantive educational opportunities these classes offer in reference to the world that surrounds us.
