Art Student

OSU-Cascades' art program offers a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in Art with a fine arts option. We also offer a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Applied Visual Arts. The BFA in Applied Visual Arts is a more intensive studio art program requiring 120 credits in art; the BA/BS programs require closer to 70 credits in art and include more requirements outside of the art curriculm.

The curriculum is based on building an awareness and understanding of the historical, technical and contemporary aspects of art with a focus on the significance of art in society. The program offers the opportunity for professional artistic development, while incorporating subjects that lead to a liberal education.

This major program prepares students for a range of professional opportunities or later graduate study in advertising, fine arts, teaching, graphic arts, communications, photography, and art history.

The program also offers an art history minor and a visual arts minor with a studio concentration.
