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

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.

The LSA/Art & Design 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 interested in these degree programs typically seek concurrent admission, as freshmen, to both units, and, if successful, their programs of study will lead to bachelor's degrees from both colleges. 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.  

Bachelor of Arts in Art & Design

At least 150 credits are required to earn both an LSA degree and the Bachelor of Arts in Art & Design. Of the minimum 150 credits elected, at least 100 credits must be LSA courses.  

Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art & Design or Bachelor of Arts in Interarts Performance

At least 170 credits (and ten semesters of work) are required to earn both an LSA degree and either of the Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees. Of the minimum 170  credits elected, at least 100 credits must be LSA courses.  

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.

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.
