Studio Art Concentration
The studio art concentration requires at least 36 graduate credit hours, including 18 hours in a major studio field (or 12 major and six minor hours), nine art history hours, three approved liberal arts hours (may be upperlevel undergraduate), three elective hours, and 7399 Exhibition and Catalogue Project. A foreign language is not required.
Students work with a faculty advisor in the major studio field to design a course of study. Courses are divided into Level I and Level II. The Advancement to Candidacy Critique must be passed before enrolling for ARST 7399 Exhibitions and Catalogue Project. The Advancement to Candidacy Critique, which is open to all faculty, is scheduled when all Level I courses have been completed with a cumulative 3.0 GPA. The studentʹs portfolio and all work in the program are reviewed by a faculty committee of at least three persons selected by the student in consultation with the major field advisor and program coordinator. The committee may recommend that the student continue to Level II, repeat some or all of Level I, or be dismissed from the program.
The exhibition and catalogue project must be proposed to and accepted by the studentʹs advisory committee before Advancement to Candidacy is granted. The exhibition must be organized and scheduled according to departmental policies, and the catalogue must document the exhibition following departmental guidelines and Graduate School thesis standards. Two copies of the catalogue become the property of the Department of Art and the Graduate School.
