The Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art combines a liberal arts education with the development of studio skills. Students do coursework in art history and studio art. The concentration is flexible to allow students to focus on one area or explore a broad range of courses. All students entering UNCG as studio art majors must complete the Foundations Program.

The Bachelor of Arts in Art History is a liberal arts program with emphasis on the visual rather than the verbal tradition. An undergraduate degree in art history offers students an excellent preparation for entry into the workforce or as a foundation for graduate or professional school. Students who wish to pursue a professional career in this discipline should plan to enter an M.A. or Ph.D. program after graduation. In preparation for doctoral work, students should acquire a fluent reading knowledge of two foreign languages; German and French are usually recommended.
