The BFA in Art Education (K-12) prepares students for “A” teacher licensure and a career in art education. The BFA in Studio Art is a pre-professional degree leading to the MFA or directly to a career in the visual arts as an artist or arts professional. While studio intensive, the BFA degrees at UNCG are liberal arts degrees with a solid grounding in the humanities and sciences.
All students who wish to pursue a BFA degree enter the department as candidates for a BA degree with a Concentration in Studio Art. Upon completion of the Foundations program, students who wish to pursue the BFA in Art Education (K-12), or the BFA in Studio Art with a Concentration in New Media and Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking and Drawing, or Sculpture and Ceramics will submit a portfolio of their work. Admission to any BFA degree program is contingent upon successful review of that portfolio by a rotating committee of art department faculty.
