Department of Art

(College of Humanities, Arts and Sciences)


www.uni.edu/artdept

The Department of Art offers the following undergraduate and graduate programs.  Specific requirements for these programs are listed within this Department of Art section in the following order: 

Undergraduate Major (B.F.A.)

  • Art: Studio B.F.A.

Undergraduate Majors (B.A.)

  • Art-Studio Emphasis
  • Art-Art History Emphasis
  • Art Education-Teaching
  • Graphic Design

Minors

  • Art
  • Art History

Graduate Major (M.A.)

  • Art Education 

Major programs are offered by the Department of Art in two baccalaureate degree areas, the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Fine Arts. The Bachelor of Arts degree is a liberal arts program offered in Graphic Design or Art with three emphasis options: studio, art history or art education (teaching). The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is a professional program with an intensive studio emphasis. 

It is possible for students to earn both the B.F.A. degree along with the B.A. in Art-Art History emphasis or the B.A. in Art Education-Teaching.  However, a double major in Art-Studio Emphasis and Graphic Design is not possible.  Likewise, it is not possible to earn both the B.F.A. and a B.A. in either Art-Studio Emphasis or Graphic Design.

No grade of less than C- shall satisfy any art major or minor degree requirement whether taken at UNI or transferred from another institution. For all studio courses in the Department of Art programs the ratio of student work hours to credit hours is 3:1. Therefore, additional work is required outside the regular class meeting times.

Courses in the Department of Art require specialized materials, some of which are provided through art lab fees.

Art courses which fulfill an Art major requirement cannot be used to fulfill Category 3A of the Liberal Arts Core.

  

Foundations Sequence

The Foundations Sequence is a one-year program required for all art majors and art minors. Introductory courses are offered that will provide an intense exploration of basic art concepts and skills as preparation for specialized and advanced areas of study.

Art majors take the 18 hours of introductory courses in the first year of study. The Foundations Sequence is prerequisite to all studio and art history courses. Generally, students enroll in Drawing I, 2-D Concepts, and Survey of Art History I during the first semester and Drawing II, 3-D Concepts, and Survey of Art History II the second semester.

The Foundations Sequence is a prerequisite for introductory level courses taken only by Art majors and minors.
