B.A. in Art Studio

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Art - Art Studio option is a broad, well-rounded liberal arts degree that is intended for students who desire an intensive studio art specialization with a more open educational program. The flexibility of this degree allows students to pursue fine arts alongside another field of academic study. Students have the option to select a minor, or a group of related courses, with the assistance of their faculty advisor.

The BA in Art - Art Studio does not require a portfolio for admission into the program. Students will be accepted to WIU as a BA Art major.


There is an honors curriculum available for all Art degree programs that students may complete if they qualify for the University Honors program. See Art Honors.
