You should begin taking Art Foundations courses as soon as you think you might want to major in art. No matter which degree you choose, you’ll need the following:
- ART 201 | Studio Art I: Surface/Image/Practice
- ART 202 | Studio Art II: Space/Form/Materials
- ART 203 | Digital Art I (except Art History majors)
- ART 213 | The Visual Art Experience
Many art history courses require ENGL 201 as a prerequisite, so we encourage you to take that course as early as possible.
You’ll probably also take some General Education courses while taking your Art Foundations. During this time, you should work closely with a CAAR advisor to plan your degree program. Once you’ve decided to declare a major (art education, art history, or studio art), you’ll be assigned an ART advisor.
Keep in mind, while taking general education credits, the Art Department has four General Education courses that can count towards your program: ART 213: The Visual Art Experience (humanities breadth area) as well as ART 310: World Art, ARTH 303: The Body in Art, and ARTH 340: Native North American Art (diversity requirement).
