Exploring the Major— Students considering this concentration must enroll in the 100-level foundation core studio courses during their first three terms at Berea.  All 100-level foundation core studio courses must be completed before moving on to the 200-level studio courses.

Admission to the Major— Completion of ART 134, ART 135, ART 136 and ART 137 with a total GPA in the 4 courses of a 2.0 or higher and a portfolio review.

Course Sequencing Considerations (in order to complete degree requirements within eight terms)— Students interested in this major should take General Education requirements at the same time as Art courses. Studio courses at the 100-level are offered every Fall and Spring term. Advanced studio courses must be taken in sequence and no 200-level studio class may be taken without all four 100-level studio area courses.  ARH 121 and ARH 124 should be taken in the first four terms and ARH 255 should be completed by the second term of the junior year. Students in this concentration must satisfactorily complete ART 492 in their studio area during the last spring term of residence and participate in a group senior exhibition or a faculty-approved one-person exhibition.

Proficiency Requirements for Retention in and Completion of the Major— In addition to all foundation core studio courses with the above-stated minimum GPA of 2.0 and a portfolio review, majors must successfully complete through the 400-level studio media focus and ART 492 requirements with participation in a group senior exhibition or a faculty-approved one-person exhibition.

Other Considerations and Recommendations— No regular ART course are offered during the summer terms but 200-level and above ART electives may be earned by off campus experiences.
