About

The Bachelor of Fine Art program at Radford University provides a comprehensive education for the professional artist and prepares students for entry into Master of Fine Arts degree programs.

Overview

A portfolio review for all Bachelor of Fine Art students at Radford University is administered each academic year during spring semester by a Department of Art faculty jury. Bachelor of Fine Arts students must satisfactorily complete the annual portfolio review. All students, including students who transfer into the B.F.A. Program from other degree options and transfer students, must pass the portfolio review the year before they graduate to be eligible to participate in the exit review. 

Learning outcomes

To be eligible for the degree, a student must earn a satisfactory score in an exit review consisting primarily of work in the student’s area of specialization. After passing an exit review, the student will then hang the work in the B.F.A. exhibition. The Art Department faculty will give final approval/disapproval after the B.F.A. exhibition is hung. B.F.A. art majors choose a studio art concentration or a graphic design concentration. If they choose studio, they then specialize in either two-dimensional (2-D) or three-dimensional (3-D) art.

Within these areas of concentration, each student may choose to specialize in the medium of his or her choice: painting, watercolor, drawing, jewelry and metalworking, ceramics, or photography. In addition to the specialization, students take courses in another studio area outside their area of concentration to complete their degree. All studio art majors must take a two-semester sequence designed to develop a senior project and prepare work intended specifically for the graduation show. Students in any concentration within the art department must receive a grade of C or better in any course that counts toward the major.
