This integrated major fully combines in-depth coursework in academics and studio to prepare practicing artists who will contribute to our culture as creators and thinkers.
Under the guidance of an impressive faculty of scholar-teachers, you gain first-rate liberal arts education and build a depth of understanding in such areas as philosophy and ethics or social sciences and political history, while pursuing advanced artistic investigations in a studio major.
In four years, you will complete all requirements for a B.F.A. in a studio discipline simultaneously with a challenging liberal arts major in Humanistic Studies, allowing you to begin graduate study a year earlier than 5-year B.A./B.F.A. programs.
Personalize Your Major
Through electives, you can personalize your major, build a wealth of knowledge in subjects that will complement your artmaking.
If you are interested in illustration, you may focus on creative writing, or a painter might focus on philosophy. And if your studio component is photography, you might focus your liberal arts study on social and political history. The possibilities are almost endless.
