The foundations program is required for all Art & Design majors and minors and is completed during the first year as an art student. Our rigorous curriculum provides opportunities in both studio and art history courses and teaches essential technical and conceptual skills that prepare students for success in upper level courses.
Upon completion of the foundations year, all students are required to submit a portfolio for review by the department. A passing grade in the foundation portfolio review is required to move forward into your area of concentration.
