The Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with a major in Art at UT Permian Basin is a professional degree designed to
provide students with the skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to become professional artists and
designers, and to develop the kind of inquiring mind that will lead to continued study at an advanced or
professional level in the field. The total semester credit hours required for a BFA in Art is 120.
Students pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree are required to enter two competitions (local, area, state,
national, or international) prior to graduation.
Students who work with two-dimensional art will develop an understanding of and competency in controlling the flat plane through use of the essential elements. Color theory, composition, drawing, design and art history are all tools to be incorporated by the student for the expression and development of personal imagery for the two- dimensional option. More specifically, traditional two-dimensional media, drawing, painting and printmaking will be incorporated with newer materials and technologies as befits the student and the course.
Students who work with three-dimensional art will focus on the areas of materials, processes, and historical structures with attention towards developing a personal vocabulary of form and content for the future. Focusing on the use of tools and materials as a genesis for the creation of objects.
All Art majors will be required to meet the visual arts core or its equivalent. Those students transferring in who have not met these requirements must do so before taking junior and senior level courses.
