The Bachelor of Arts in Art and Design prepares students for a range of creative careers. Beginning with strong foundational principles of design, students have a well-rounded course of study with photography, video, web design, and art history, and are then provided the flexibility to study in an area of their choosing. The degree is ideal for students who wish to double major or diversify their skills with additional minors and whose educational goal is a major in art and design that incorporates more substantive study in the liberal arts than the Bachelor of Fine Arts allows. Like the BFA program, the BA focuses on creativity, problem solving, project development and teamwork, and mastery of technique and craftsmanship, while providing the interdisciplinary perspective necessary to succeed in today's art and design fields.
