Art & Design (Joint Degree Program in Liberal Arts and Art & Design)

The Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design offers dual admission to entering students who wish to pursue two degree programs. Dual admission allows students the freedom and ease to explore the educational opportunities of more than one discipline beginning in their first year of enrollment. 


The LSA/Stamps joint degree programs are intended for students whose educational goals include earning undergraduate degrees from both the Stamps School of Art & Design and LSA. Students must meet all the requirements of both degree programs. Of the minimum credits elected to satisfy the dual degree program, at least 100 credits must be LSA courses.  

Students interested in these degree programs may seek concurrent admission, as freshmen, to both units or they may apply to the Multiple Dependent Degree Program (MDDP) after enrolling.

The Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design offers a Bachelor of Arts in Art & Design, a  Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art & Design, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interarts Performance.

Bachelor of Arts in Art & Design 

The B.A. in Art & Design is the appropriate degree for students who want a rigorous education in art and design with the flexibility of a liberal arts education. Students who are interested in pursuing a substantive portion of their education through academic studies, athletes, pre-health, and pre-law students are excellent candidates for a B.A.

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art & Design 

The BFA in Art & Design prepares graduates for a broad range of eventualities, integrates art and design methodologies, interweaves traditional techniques with contemporary technologies, bridges the personal to the social, and engages the rich resources of the University and the community.

Bachelor of Arts in Interarts Performance

The interdisciplinary BFA in Interarts Performance will be attractive to students who have interests in both the visual arts and theater as well as a desire to create original performance pieces.
