The BA
The BA degree combines student’s interests from other disciplines to create what is essentially an applied art degree. Students who may be interested in arts administration, art therapy, art education, or commercial arts enroll in this program of study to truly build a degree unique to them. Students complete a final project which is presented in a group exhibition.

This degree allows students to really explore and define their means of expression and build what is truly their personal style.
