     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.
