The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree programs are designed to prepare students for professional
careers as a classroom art teacher, graphic designer, or studio artist. The BFA in Graphic
Design or the BFA in Art (with emphasis in Studio Art or Art Education) is the initial professional
degree, and it is the requisite degree for the student who plans to pursue a studio-oriented
post-baccalaureate degree. A minimum 2.75 GPA in all courses with an ART/ARTH/ARED
prefi x is required for the BFA degree.
