Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art

The Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Studio Art provides students with a more general and broad immersion in the field. Designed to develop the student’s understanding of the aesthetic and ideological aspects of art and its relationship to life, the BA in Studio Art at the University of South Florida is a 120-credit degree.

Students will explore their personal ideas, art-making skills and imagery. You can take courses in the following studios:

Studio courses are supplemented with studies in art history, foreign language, and a plethora of electives within the school itself and throughout the university.

While the BA in Studio Art is not usually the preferred preparation for moving on to the Master of Fine Arts degree, it is quite appropriate for seeking other advanced degrees, especially in the Liberal Arts or other similar programs.

Professional or career opportunities include working as an artist, designer, animator, consultant, media specialist, photographer, videographer, teacher, fabricator, imagist, or most any job that entails the use of imagination, critical thinking and the production of visual materials.
