Art & Visual Studies

The backdrop of the Georgian Court University campus provides the inspiration to study for a B.F.A. in Art and Visual Studies. Enjoy a well-balanced program of theory and practice along with opportunities to develop individualistic creative skills.

Through a range of art history courses, students acquire knowledge of both Western and non-Western art movements, critically analyze individual works, and understand the uniquely integrative nature of multicultural art study. The program culminates with a capstone exhibition seminar.

Consistent with the educational philosophy of Georgian Court, the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree maintains a strong liberal arts component rooted in the Georgian Court core requirements. The B.F.A. in Art & Visual Studies is a 72-credit program with an interdisciplinary approach to art.

The program starts with a strong foundation program and culminates with a capstone exhibition seminar. The foundation courses allow students to develop strong technical skills in a variety of media and gain an understanding of the principles of art, design and visual thinking. In light of the fact that artists have always and are continuing to push boundaries and cross artistic disciplines, the program offers students a wide range of courses to purse their creative interest.

The strong interdisciplinary approach to art making prepares students for professional artistic practice after graduation or graduate school.

The interdisciplinary nature of the B.F.A. in Visual Studies makes it ideal for students seeking to transfer into the program. Thirty-nine of the required B.F.A. credits must be taken at Georgian Court.
