University Majors

California Polytechnic University, San Luis Obispo
Art and Design B.F.A. with a Concentration in Studio Art

The Bachelor of Science degree program in Art and Design offers a major with concentrations in graphic design, photography and digital imagery, and studio art. The BS in Art and Design is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. The department has made a commitment to cultural diversity. Wherever possible, this commitment is evidenced by the inclusion of material which identifies significant multicultural influences on the content of the courses in our curriculum. Courses are available for all students to enrich their creativity, understanding, appreciation, and practical skills in art. The Studio Art concentration is a program designed for students who are seeking a broad-based undergraduate education in the visual arts. This program is distinctive for its depth of required course work in both two and three-dimensional media. The upper division curriculum allows students to specialize in a discipline pertinent to their career choice in the visual arts. Courses in portfolio preparation, professional practices, and a senior project prepare the student to enter the work place or pursue advanced degrees. Some of the many career possibilities for our graduates include exhibiting as a professional artist and pursuing positions in industry, education, entertainment, and museum/gallery management. Cal Poly, with its learn-by-doing philosophy and its commitment to both the liberal arts and technology, provides a unique setting for studying the visual arts. Within this context, the students in the Studio Art concentration are presented with an environment where imagination, intellectual rigor, self-expression, and skill development are expected and valued.
