Art Major with an emphasis in
Art Majors with an emphasis in Studio Art have a focus at the upper level in at least one studio area selected from: drawing, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, textiles, jewelry/metals, or ceramics. This focus prepares students for jobs as professional artists or to work in related visual communications careers. It also prepares students for entry into graduates art programs.
Before students take upper-level courses in their area of focus, students must complete the design core, courses in art history, and a selection of both 2-D and 3-D introductory courses in other studio areas. For timely completion of the program, declare your major with the art advisor and begin coursework early.
For a focus in Studio Art, students take at least 9 credits in one upper level studio area at the upper level (300 & 400 course numbers). In addition to Intermediate Drawing, which every Art Major is required to take, students also take 6 credits in any other upper level studio area. All advanced 400 studio courses may be repeated up to three times.
Independent Studies in studio art are primarily reserved for those students who have already completed an advanced course three times; enrollment in an Independent Study is at the discretion of the professor. (link to Independent Studies in UWGB course catalog)

Students declare themselves Art Majors or Minors with a signed form from the Art Advisor as soon as possible, preferably no later than their sophomore year. Many of the lower-level art courses have a priority registration designation to reserve seats for the declared art major/minor.

Art is a disciplinary major. All art majors need an interdisciplinary minor. Art majors often select a minor in Design Arts or Arts Management, although there are several other choices. Art Students often have a second major in Design Arts or Arts Management because a number of classes count for both majors.
