Fine Arts Post-Baccalaureate Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees and Other Programs Offered

The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program (PBC) in Fine Arts is designed for artists who have earned the BFA or BA degree, yet would benefit from a concentrated immersion in a highly-supportive yet critical academic/studio environment.  Applicants to the PBC may wish to develop their artwork for application to graduate school/professional residency or to launch a professional career.

The program requires a total of 9 credit hours in a declared studio area, six of which are at the graduate level (3 credits in the fall and 3 in the spring); 3 credits in either Graduate Seminar or, in consultation with faculty advisor, a graduate-level studio course that will best support the student’s goals.  This course of study must be completed in one academic year and is not a low-residency program.  It requires commitment to work on-campus in the studio space that is provided.

Graduate-level participation is expected in the following areas:  on-going and scheduled critiques, attendance at visiting artist presentations and exhibitions, technical studio upkeep and maintenance, and delivery of a formal “sources” presentation midway through the year.

The program has four distinctive concentration choices in the following areas:  Painting, Printmaking, Drawing, and Sculpture.
