Printmaking courses provide students with traditional experiences in a variety of printmaking processes, including intaglio, relief, screen-printing and lithography. As students learn the different techniques within these processes they are encouraged to explore their own subject matter and content. The printmaking facilities are a non-toxic environment to protect the health and well being of the students and faculty.
BFA Major in Studio Art (80 hours of Art)
The program is 120 semester credit hours, including at least 40 upper-division credit hours. The program requires 80 hours of art and art history, 35 hours of UCA Core courses (fine arts requirement not required for art majors – completion of the major fulfills the requirement), and 3 hours of foreign language at the 2000 level. Art courses must follow a prerequisite structure. Students with a 2.5 cumulative GPA and 3.25 major GPA on a minimum of 24 hours of art may apply for entrance into the BFA program after successfully completing SMAI (Sophomore Major Advancement Interview). Students should submit application for acceptance into the BFA program in the spring of the sophomore year.
In order to complete the state-mandated minimum number of hours for core requirements in general education, art majors are required to complete a Humanities course in the Diversity in Creative Works category and a Humanities course in either the Responsible Living category or the Diversity in World Cultures category.
