The special options degree program in arts and sciences/art is designed for students who wish to include studio arts in conjunction with studies in humanities and/or sciences. The option permits any major in the College of Arts and Sciences to be joined with studio arts work. The degree awarded at the completion of undergraduate study is a B.A. in the arts and sciences major with the supplementary designation “and art.” The degree is singly awarded by the College of Arts and Sciences.


Under no circumstances will students be permitted to enter this special program after they have completed the first semester of their sophomore year. A portfolio is required for admission into the program.

Arts and Sciences Requirements

At least 9 credits must be completed in the College of Arts and Sciences (including the arts and sciences core, usually 60 credits). Students also complete an arts and sciences major (usually 30 credits) including 6 credits of upper-division art history.

School of Art and Design Requirements

The 30-credit option involves 15 credits of introductory design, drawing, and painting, followed by 15 elective credits in painting, drawing, fiber arts, ceramics, and/or sculpture.

Additional Information

All FND (Foundation) course requirements (12 credits) must be completed within the first 3 semesters of enrollment in the program. Moreover, students must complete at least 9 credits of their 12-credit FND requirements BEFORE they will be allowed to enroll in upper-level courses.

There is no provision for advanced work in non-studio areas of the School of Art and Design, leading to degrees such as the B.F.A. or B.L.D.
