UCF offers both graduate and undergraduate programs in studio art and students can tailor their studies toward specific goals. Specializations include book arts, ceramics, drawing, drawing and printmaking combination, drawing and illustration combination, painting, photography, sculpture, and type and design.
At the undergraduate level, studio art majors can pursue either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Fine Arts degree.
The Studio BFA prepares students for professional practices and is recommended for students who plan to attend graduate school. Other differences between the B.A. and BFA include:
- BFA requires more credit hours
- BFA students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in ART courses to continue in the program. B.A. students must maintain the 2.0 GPA average that the university as a whole requires
- BFA students choose one specialization to master. B.A. students choose from multiple specializations.
- BFA students must complete a BFA exhibit/seminar course
- Students must first apply to the Art B.A. Studio program, and, after successfully completing the Studio Art Portfolio Review with a 3.0 GPA, they can apply to the BFA Studio Track
UCF also offers minor and M.F.A. programs in studio art.
