The Bachelor of Arts degree in Art will benefit students wishing to pursue a program that places great emphasis on the liberal arts, but with a strong concentration in the field of art. In addition to the college requirements for the Bachelor of Arts, a minimum of 51 semester hours in Art is required. Students who are interested in careers in teaching Art from Early Childhood through 12th Grade and wish to work toward eventual teaching certification, may benefit from incorporating the Minor in Education in fulfillment of the BA degree requirements. Students interested in the Minor in Education should contact the College of Education about the minor requirements and application process, and they should also seek advising in the School of Art about content courses that support this goal.
