Overview

At the University of North Alabama, what differentiates a BS and a BA in Art is the foreign language sequence required for the BA. There are a total of 125 credit hours to fulfill the degree requirement. Students pursuing a BA in Art will take both studio and art history courses as part of their 51-credit hour major requirements. 41 credit hours are required for general education courses. 

While there are 33 credit hours allotted for general electives, 6 of those credit hours must be used to fulfill one foreign language sequence.  Additional elective hours may be used for minor programs, advanced-level studies in Art, or for exploring one’s interest in various academic areas.

The aim of the BA in Art is to provide students a wide range of training in and understanding of studio arts. Since the goal of such training is not necessarily preparation for a career in art or design upon graduation, the addition of a supplementary minor program is strongly encouraged. 

Suggested minors include Psychology (for those wishing to pursue careers/studies in art therapy), Business (for those wishing to pursue careers/studies in art management), English (a great compliment to any major program), Digital Media Production, and Human Computer Interaction/User Experience Design (HCI/UC Design)
