The Art program of The University of Tampa is a challenging course of study and practice built upon fundamental principles designed to develop your technical skills, advance your visual literacy, stimulate your intellectual curiosity, sharpen your aesthetic conceptualization and expand your ability to think critically.


Areas of Study

The Art program of The University of Tampa is a professionally oriented degree that provides a comprehensive and rigorous training in visual concept development and professional studio practice. For completion of the BFA degree, students are required to take purposefully sequenced upper-level studio courses culminating in the production of a mature, cohesive body of work showcased in a senior exhibition. Special emphasis is given to helping students develop long-range professional goals through art practicums and service learning experiences. Students pursuing a professional career in art or advanced studies (Master of Fine Arts) normally select the BFA, as it is often considered the foundation of graduate-level work.

The BFA is a highly selective, invitation-only degree program. Students may declare a BFA major when entering UT, but it is listed as “Pre-BFA in Art” until they are deemed “BFA Proficient” during a portfolio review in ART 299. After the review has been completed, the department chair will provide each student with a letter describing the assessment and recommending a degree path for success.
