As part of the art degree program, a portfolio review is now required of all Studio Art and art education majors seeking a BFA Degree upon successful completion of the foundation courses. The purpose of the portfolio review is to assure that students can demonstrate visual and technical skills for successful continuation in the program and prepare creative work for senior show. It is also important for students as this stage in the art program to assess their career choices and make changes if necessary, to pursue either a BA or BFA degree depending upon the results of the portfolio review. For full information on the review, go to the “BFA Portfolio Review” page at this blog, or the Art Department web site.
Note: Students intending to pursue the Graphic Design concentration are not subject to this review. A separate continuancy review will be held during ARTS 370.
Continuancy Portfolios are due by April 1, 2011.
