The Department of Art curriculum approaches studio visual art through a broad range of media practices—ceramics, digital arts, drawing, fibers, metalsmithing and jewelry, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture. The department encourages breadth and interdisciplinary investigation, as well as depth and discipline within media, emphasizing the development of the material skills and understanding of art-making processes as well as a conceptual and critical understanding of the context of art. As actively practicing artists themselves, faculty members offer students an introduction to the compelling challenges, questions, and rewards of artistic practice.

Three bachelor’s degrees are offered by the department. A four-year program leads to the bachelor of arts (BA) or bachelor of science (BS) degree with a major in art or art and technology. The professional baccalaureate degree, the bachelor of fine arts (BFA), requires an additional fifth year of studio-intensive work. Students major in art, ceramics, art and technology, fibers, metalsmithing and jewelry, painting, photography, printmaking, or sculpture. At the graduate level, the master of fine arts (MFA) is the terminal professional degree in art.

In addition, students may access art studio offerings as nonmajors, provided they complete the appropriate course prerequisites. The department offers two courses that serve the larger university community as arts-and-letters group-satisfying courses.

Advising and Program Planning

The department stresses the importance of interdisciplinary programs as well as concentrated study. Each student is encouraged to select a faculty advisor in the first year. It is critical to the development of a worthwhile program that the advisor be familiar with and sympathetic to the student’s direction and capabilities. The importance of program planning cannot be overemphasized.

Major in Art

The bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree with a major in art is a liberal arts degree focusing on studio art practice. The curriculum is designed to train students to think critically, communicate clearly, and work creatively. Students develop an understanding of materials and tools, formal possibilities, technical skills, critical inquiry, and ways of seeing, as well as fluency in visual languages and the articulation of meaning. They gain an understanding of the larger context of art through courses in art history and theory, opportunities to study abroad, and lectures by visiting artists.

The curriculum includes course work in eight media areas—painting, sculpture, printmaking, digital media, photography, ceramics, fibers, and metalsmithing and jewelry. While all art majors share the basic requirements such as the core foundations courses and art history, students have the flexibility to pursue more advanced course work in the areas of primary interest to them.

Application to the Major

Students apply directly to the Department of Art for admission as majors to the BA, BS, and fifth-year BFA degree programs. Write or call the department or visit the department’s website for an application form. Admission screening takes place on an ongoing basis.

Bachelor's Degree Requirements

Whether studying for a bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, or bachelor of fine arts degree, all art majors complete a series of foundations courses called core studios, which are prerequisite to 200-level studio courses. This three-course structure includes an intensive studio investigation of techniques, methods, and concepts common to all areas of studio practice, emphasizing processes of experimentation, a range of technology, and translations between two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and time-based media. The core sequence includes ART 115, 116, and 233.

Major in Art and Technology

The bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree with a major in art and technology is a liberal arts degree focusing on digital media in studio art practice. The curriculum broadly encompasses print media, time-based media, and interactivity, grounded in the history and practice of visual art and communication. Through studios, laboratories, and art history and theory courses, students gain an understanding of technical skills, visual design, theory, and the articulation of meaning. The program emphasizes creative thinking, visual communication, experimentation, and innovation.

Art and technology majors share a foundation in core studios and art history with other art majors. This connection to the history and practice of visual communication is a strength of the program.

Computers in the Curriculum

A digital tools application is at the core of the art and technology program. Although campus computer laboratories and facilities are available to students, they are heavily used, and access is limited. Students are required to purchase or have unlimited access to a personal computer. Refer to the A&AA computing services website for equipment purchase.

Application to the Major

Students should prepare themselves for study in the broad and inclusive field of digital arts by developing a wide range of interests and skills that might include fine arts, music, computer science, writing, literature, games, popular culture, theater, journalism, and media theory and criticism. Foundation courses—Print Media Digital Arts (ARTD 250), Time-Based Digital Arts (ARTD 251) Interactive Digital Arts (ARTD 252)—provide opportunities to develop general skills and portfolio materials for application to the major.

The major in art and technology is an intensive, limited-enrollment program. Acceptance is competitive and based on documented evidence of potential to excel in the field. Admission screening takes place on a rolling basis and requires review of a portfolio of visual materials submitted by each applicant. These portfolios should display promise and creativity, but need not demonstrate extensive experience. Applications that don’t include visual materials are not reviewed.

Complete a four-year program and a minimum of 180 credits, including satisfaction of general-university requirements for a BA or BS degree.

Students apply directly to the art and technology program for admission as majors. The postmark deadline for applications is February 1 for fall term admission. Write or call the Department of Art, or visit the department website for application instructions.

Graduate Studies

The department offers the master of fine arts (MFA) degree in art with concentrations in ceramics, digital arts, fibers, metalsmithing and jewelry, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture.

The graduate program seeks to prepare students for serious artistic practice. The objectives for students are not only to arrive at an accomplished body of work, but also to develop the practices and critical-thinking skills necessary to develop and sustain the work beyond school.

The program focuses on individual studio practice, the cultivation of a visual language, material process, and conceptual approach relevant to each student’s intentions and sensibility. Students are challenged to devise strategies of experimentation and research and to cultivate an ability to articulate ideas and critical responses to work. As part of a larger community, students are expected to have a significant understanding of the historical frameworks and the contemporary discourse of art.

The MFA curriculum is designed to provide both interdisciplinary discourse and disciplinary depth. MFA students have much of their course work in common through classes such as Graduate Critique (ART 612), theory and history seminars, and special topics courses. Graduate review and thesis committees are made up of faculty members across the range of media concentrations. Through media-centered Issues and Practices seminars and independent studies, students also have opportunities to concentrate on particular areas of specialization. Specialized facilities and equipment are available in the eight media areas that compose the department—digital arts, sculpture, photography, ceramics, jewelry and metalsmithing, painting, printmaking, and fibers.

  • Public exhibition of the MFA thesis and final review with the terminal project committee
  • Terminal creative project report

Residency Requirements

Nine consecutive terms of full-time enrollment, not including summer session, is the minimum residence requirement. Under special circumstances, an official University of Oregon leave of absence may be requested.

Formal Procedures

Application and Admission

Students applying to the master of fine arts program in the Department of Art are asked to list areas of concentration. You may list one or multiple media areas. At different stages of the admissions process, applications are reviewed by the full faculty and by faculty members specific to your areas of concentration.

Because the principal requirement is that of residence, which may not be waived, graduate transfer credits are not accepted.

Applicants must have a bachelor’s degree and are expected to possess a high level of proficiency in their chosen media and a strong commitment to their work and artistic intentions. In their application, candidates should demonstrate an understanding of creative practice in the context of historical and conceptual frameworks. See the department website for specific application requirements and process.

Conditional Status

Applicants accepted by the Graduate School are given conditional admission to study for the MFA degree. Until or unless an entering student requests a specific graduate advisor, one faculty member designated by the department serves as the advisor to conditionally admitted students.

Conditional status of a candidate can be reviewed for reclassification to graduate master’s after completion of at least two of the required core courses, one graduate review, at least 30 credits of course work toward the MFA degree, and course work to remedy any background deficiencies. Faculty members from the department conduct a review of the student’s academic program in spring term. Following this review, the student’s advisor relays a progress report to the student and determines if the student is eligible to change classification to graduate master status.

Terminal Project and Advisor

After reclassification, the student selects a terminal project advisor from the faculty. With this advisor, the candidate selects a terminal project committee of three faculty members. A faculty member from outside the department may serve on the committee. The committee meets with the student for the project proposal, at least one progress report, and the terminal review.

Through these meetings, the committee oversees the development of the terminal project in the final year. The terminal project includes a public exhibition, a written report, and a final review by the committee.

The MFA degree is officially granted after the candidate has fulfilled all requirements, including submission to the department of a project report in a form appropriate to the nature of the project and suitable for binding for use in the Architecture and Allied Arts Library.
