Become an Art Major
The School of Art & Design admits students in the Fall (August) and Spring (January) semester each year. We offer three degree programs for which you must submit a portfolio of work for entrance: The Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art, the Bachelor of Fine Arts in Digital Animation and the Bachelor of Science in Art Education.
Transfer College Credit
Transfer students must submit work from studio courses of other institutions to be reviewed by our faculty before a determination can be made whether substitution is possible. This review can take place at the same time as your application to the major, or after you have been formally accepted to the School of Art & Design.
Substitute AP Credit
It is possible to substitute credit earned from Advanced Placement courses in Two-Dimensional Design, Three-Dimensionald Design, or Drawing prior to enrolling for specific KSU studio art degree requirements.
Choose a Concentration
After a student has completed the Lower-Division Major Requirements of the BFA in Art and while enrolled in the second course of their intended concentration area, they will submit a portfolio of work in that area for review by the supervising faculty. Students may apply to more than one concentration area, or apply to a second concentration later in their course of study. Admission into any concentration area is dependent upon the strength of the student’s portfolio, their performance in visual arts courses, and their overall academic performance in all classes taken.
