B.A. Degree with a Major in Art: Studio
Requirements for the Major
A major in Art: Studio is achieved by completion of the following requirements, in addition to the General Education and electives required for a degree:
Required Foundation/Core Courses
ART 110 and 115 and ARH 121 and 124 (see Admission to the Major requirements below)
Required Capstone Course
ART 493 (noncredit course), with a required oral presentation and senior exhibition
Required Distribution Courses
ART 206 and ARH 245; three (3) studio courses in different studio areas including both 2-D and 3-D experiences, selected from ART 111, 116, 123, 125, 130; and one (1) studio medium taken to the fourth level, selected from ART 211/311/411, 216/316/416, 223/323/423, 225/325/425, 230/330/430
Exploring the Major
Students considering this concentration must enroll in the 100-level foundation/core and 100-level studio courses during their first three terms at Berea.
Admission to the Major
Completion of ART 110 and 115, and ARH 121 or 124, with a grade of C or higher in each.
Course Sequencing Considerations (in order to complete degree requirements within eight terms)
Students interested in this major should take General Education requirements at the same time as Art courses. Studio courses at the 100 level are offered every Fall and Spring term. ARH 121 is offered in the Fall Term and ARH 124 is offered in the Spring Term. Studio classes are taken in sequence and no 200-level studio class may be taken without the prerequisite and the appropriate 100-level media and foundation/core course. Upper-level (200 and higher) ARH courses should not be taken until the prerequisite courses and the appropriate 100-level ARH course have been completed. ARH 245 should be completed by the second term of the junior year. Students in this concentration must satisfactorily complete ART 493 during the last regular term of residence.
Proficiency Requirements for Retention in and Completion of the Major
In addition to all foundation/core courses, and the above-stated minimum grade of C in ART 110 and 115 as well as ARH 121 or 124, majors must successfully complete the 400 level studio media focus and ART 493 requirements and participate in a group senior exhibition or a faculty-approved one-person exhibition.
Other Considerations and Recommendations
No ART course offered in the former Short Terms may be applied to the major requirements.
