UAB Department of Art and Art History: Art Studio

As a studio art major, you will cultivate and enhance your skills in communicating visually and be provided with strong critical and conceptual frameworks for art-making. Throughout your studies in studio art you will be encouraged to create a unique artistic trajectory by engaging in multiple disciplines of the fine arts and design while developing skills to carry out visual research, analyze artwork, create professional portfolios and present your work orally and in writing.

Studio majors can choose between two degree tracks, the BA in Art Studio and the BFA in Art Studio.

BA Art Studio

The Bachelor of Arts degree is offered for students who seek a liberal arts education with a specific concentration in art studio. Whatever their media, our students experience the possibilities of what it means to create artwork that transforms the world in which they live.

BFA Art Studio

The Department of Art and Art History’s Bachelor of Fine Arts degree offers students an intensive exploration across a breadth of media and within a depth of discipline that allows the undergraduate student to prepare to be an artist or designer, begin a career in the arts, or to continue their studies in graduate school. Students gain skills and competencies including: team-based learning, technology, communication, aesthetic judgment, interdisciplinary and innovative approaches, critical analysis, and professional development throughout their program of study. The BFA exhibition, a highlight of the undergraduate career, both demonstrates and celebrates the students’ accomplishments.
