The BA in Art and the BA in Art History from Wright State University, are designed for students who wish to combine a liberal education with specific studies in art. The BFA degree is designed for students who want to pursue a more intensive professional studio art program. The department also offers minors in art history and studio art, and BFA degrees that enable students to receive graphic design or interior design certificates from Sinclair Community College.
Because self-expression and self-learning are the ultimate goals of the program, students are largely responsible for determining the options that best meet their individual needs and interests. Candidates for a degree in art may prepare for graduate study, careers in teaching, museum and gallery curation, commercial arts, or the professional practice of art.
In the studio area, studies begin with introductory courses in drawing, 2D and 3D Foundations and Photography. These courses are designed for the beginning artist and guide the student’s development in the visual arts. The program helps students expand and express their knowledge and grow in self-expression by exploring the processes and language that are basic to all visual arts. Rather than follow a system of independent courses in a given medium or discipline, students investigate issues and ideas in a variety of visual modes.
Incoming students who have scored a 4 or 5 on the AP exam for Drawing, 2D Foundations and 3D Foundations will automatically receive credit for these courses. Incoming students who have scored a 3 will automatically receive Art Elective credit. Students with a score of 3 are eligible to submit a portfolio for review and placement.; otherwise, all first-year students in art are admitted to the general curriculum. All candidates for the B.F.A. degree must be represented in the senior exhibition.
Students who wish to teach art in Ohio public schools can pursue the BFA degree with the art education component. Upon completion of this undergraduate degree, students will be eligible to seek admission to qualified masters and licensure programs throughout the state.
