The Printmaking Program explores contemporary art practices and collaborative experiences while maintaining the integrity of existing traditional techniques including intaglio, relief, screen-printing and lithography. As students learn basic methods within these processes they are encouraged to examine their own subject matter and content. The printmaking facility utilizes green studio practices 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 either the Diversity category or in the Responsible Living category.
