About the Program
The education offered by the Visual Arts program at Rutgers University differs from an art school program that focuses exclusively on studio skills. At Mason Gross, studios and seminar discussions together confront students with a wide range of techniques, materials, visual languages, and cultural issues. Creation and critical analysis go hand in hand.
For the BFA in visual arts, students choose a concentration in one of six areas: drawing, media, painting, photography, print, and sculpture. Students take three year-long, two-semester studio courses and complete a 3-credit seminar within their chosen concentration area. Students declare their concentration by the end of the second year of study, at their sophomore review or at their transfer review, usually in December of their first term at Mason Gross. Students may opt to double concentrate or do a hybrid concentration with approval by two faculty members and guidance of the undergraduate advisor.
Students are required to take one art history or critical studies elective as a requirement toward the BFA major. This elective should be carefully chosen to enhance their knowledge of their chosen concentration.
