Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Admission to the BA major is processed through the UD Admissions Office. On the Undergraduate Admissions webpage, you will be prompted to the Common Application to the University and the Application Checklist. The deadline to apply is January 15.

Once a student is accepted into the Department and the University they are admitted as a BA Art Major. A portfolio is not required to apply to the Bachelor of Arts degree.

Advising and Review

Upon successful completion of the two-year core credit requirements, students in all undergraduate degree programs are assessed through a portfolio review advising session with the art and design faculty. These reviews are usually conducted in the spring of sophomore year. At that time, a BA major has the option to apply for the BFA in Fine Arts (FA) and/or BFA in Visual Communications (VC). Admission into these programs is competitive.   

Art and Design majors are required to receive a grade of C- (2.66 GPA) or better in all ART courses to continue in the degree path.

International Students

Upon receipt of your application, the University Office of Admissions responds to all Department of Art and Design applicants with a letter outlining the requirements for admission.
