The B.F.A. degree is offered for students who seek a more concentrated undergraduate professional education in ceramic sculpture, drawing, graphic design, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and time-based media. Students who intend to pursue professional careers in art and design or who plan to pursue graduate study culminating in the M.F.A. degree are strongly encouraged to seek admission to the B.F.A. program. Admission to the university does not guarantee acceptance into the B.F.A. program. Students apply by submitting a portfolio for review by the B.F.A. committee. Portfolios are reviewed twice each year, in fall and spring terms. Students may not apply for admission to the B.F.A. program until they have completed 15 hours of art studio, with a minimum of six hours at UAB, and all of the 100-level studio requirements.
The B.F.A. program requires completion of a 72-hour art studio major and 18-hour art history minor. Students must also comply with the Core Curriculum requirements of the Department of Art and Art History applicable to the B.F.A.
