Art, B.Sc.

  • Application Deadline
  • 48 months
Radford, VA, United States
The B.S. in Art, with a concentration in Studio Art, has several pathways and is intended for students who are interested in art but who do not plan on pursuing a career as a professional artist.


The goal of this degree is to prepare students to pursue either graduate work or career opportunities in art-related disciplines where the B.F.A. degree and/or educational licensure is not required. These areas might include material cultural studies, forensic arts, art therapy, recreational use of art in extracurricular educational settings, or marketing and business. Students in any concentration within the art department must receive a grade of C or better in any course that counts toward the major.
