Department of Art and Design Statement of Policy
Students in studio courses in art are required to furnish their own materials except certain studio equipment and some highly specialized materials provided by the Department. All work when completed is under the control of the Department until the end of the academic year. The student is expected to have a representative portfolio of his/her work available for presentation at any time prior to graduation.
Each candidate for a degree may be required to leave with the Department of Art and Design one or more pieces of original work. These are added to the collection of the work of graduates and will form a permanent University collection.
During the sophomore year or during the first semester after transferring from another institution, all candidates for degrees will present a portfolio of work to be reviewed by the faculty for the purpose of acceptance into the Bachelor of Fine Arts program.
During the senior year, all candidates for degrees will present an exhibition of representative work to be reviewed by the faculty and professionals from their field as partial graduation approval. Specific information about reviews and exhibitions may be obtained in the Department of Art and Design office.
