Upper-Level Studio Art Emphasis Courses 1
Students in the Studio Art Emphasis may choose from a variety of studio options in either 2-D or 3-D studios. Once students have decided on their chosen studio courses, they fill out the upper-level Studio Art Plan form in consultation with an Art adviser. The Art Plan form is used to count courses taken toward the degree and must be filed with the Registrar's Office. - The 10-credit Design Core is required prerequisite for all upper-level studio courses. - A minimum of 9 credits must be selected from one studio area in addition to other relevant upper-level studio art courses to total 15 credits. Upper-level classes have a 300 or 400 designation. - Advanced studios may be taken 3 times for a total of 9 credits. Some courses may have other courses substituted to be more appropriate for student goals. Talk to your adviser for more details. 1
