BFA Visual & Critical Studies is a multidisciplinary studio program designed to engage and challenge ambitious students in areas beyond a single medium of expression and creation. This dynamic course of study reflects our rapidly expanding visual culture and the increasing urgency to educate students about all aspects of visual experience. BFA Visual & Critical Studies students shape their own multidimensional art education through a guided combination of studio courses and academic offerings focusing on myriad forms and venues of contemporary visual life.
