When you are accepted into the Art & Design Department as a Freshman, you are
accepted as a BA (Bachelor of Arts) student. You must complete the
Freshman Foundations courses in order to apply to a BFA (Bachelor of
Fine Arts) degree program (i.e. Visual Communications or Fine Arts).
As a freshman in the Art & Design Department, you are assigned an department faculty advisor. This person will be a professor from any of
the degree programs throughout the department. When you contact your
advisor as a Freshman, be sure to indicate that you are a Freshman in
the Art & Design Department, and be very comprehensive with your question.
Once you are accepted into a BFA Degree Program (Visual
Communications or Fine Arts) the Art & Design office will assign a professor in
the appropriate BFA degree program.
