The Art and Art History Program within the Department of Visual and Literary Arts supports the creative, aesthetic and cultural development of students within the university community and serves the cultural and educational needs of the state. The department is dedicated to preparing its graduates to assume leadership positions in their professional lives while maintaining an inner commitment to the aesthetic standards of their chosen discipline. The program fosters a unique combination of innovation, tradition, aestheticism and practicality, by providing a professional visual arts education built on a strong University Studies Program (USP) foundation.

Department Policy

A class within the Art and Art History Program within the Department of Visual and Literary Arts may require additional meeting times, so that students may fully participate in the Visiting Artist Program and the UWAM lecture series. As a matter of policy, the Department of Visual and Literary Arts reserves the right to retain any works created by students it deems worthy for the purposes of exhibition until the end of the academic year. The Department of Visual and Literary Arts studios are the primary instructional classrooms. As a matter of policy, access to the studios and use of the equipment is reserved for students who are formally registered for scheduled courses and are following a prescribed curriculum.

Scholarships

The department has several scholarships for qualified students at all stages in the program. See the Department of Visual and Literary Arts website for a full list of scholarships.

Academic and Career Advisement

Faculty advisers work closely with department students to guide and direct their progress through their declared degree program and course of study. Through the visiting Artist Program, the UW Art Museum and internship placements, the department provides numerous opportunities and role models for a professional life in the visual arts. Through consultation and discussion with faculty advisers, art students consider their interests and abilities in relation to the many and varied careers in the arts and art related fields. Many graduates go directly into industry, on to pursue graduate studies or take the next step in their career plan. On a competitive basis upon graduation, majors may participate in the Post Undergraduate Assistantship Program where they may prepare a portfolio for graduate school and/or gain additional experience in the studio and the classroom setting.

Undergraduate Majors

The University of Wyoming Department of Visual and Literary Arts offers five degrees with in the Art and Art History Program:

  • Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art
  • Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Art
  • Bachelor of Arts in Art History
  • Bachelor of Arts with a Concentration in Graphic Design
  • Bacheor of Arts in Art Education

Transfer Residency

A minimum of 26 hours of upper-division course work in the major is required to establish residency in the department for all transfer students. This applies to students in all five of the B.F.A., B.A., and Art Education degree programs who transfer in 12 or more hours of art courses for the major. Students in all art programs must meet the university requirement of at least 42 hours of course work at the upper-division level (3000- and above).

Studio Art and Art Education Majors – General Requirements

ART 1005, 1110, 1120 and 1130 are considered an important preparation and prerequisite for drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, sculpture and graphic design courses and are required freshman courses for the major. Studio Art and Art Education Majors must complete the Foundation Core Hours before electing upper division courses in any studio area. ART 2010, 2020, and 2305 are required sophomore courses.

Once sophomore Art Studio and Art Education majors complete course prerequisites, they select a minimum of four courses from the studio core hours. Most of the university and college requirements should be completed as early as possible before the senior year. The department will enforce published prerequisites for courses.

Studio Art and Art Education majors must submit a portfolio for evaluation before proceeding to intermediate and advanced studios beyond the required studio core. Any student whose Visual and Literary Arts College of Arts and Sciences 170 portfolio is assessed as deficient must address the deficiencies before receiving permission to advance in the major.

Please note: Studio Art and Art Education students who do not pass the portfolio review will be able to resubmit the following semester. However, if students fail more than once, they will be unable to progress in the Department of Visual and Literary Arts and may be asked to transfer to another department or UW college or complete an art minor. Portfolio evaluation will occur once in each of the fall, spring, and summer semesters.

Application

Formal application is made to the program for acceptance into the B.F.A. in Studio Art degree program. Application must be submitted at least three semesters prior to the applicant’s anticipated graduation. Favorable faculty review of the application materials are required before a student is declared a candidate for the B.F.A. in Studio Art degree. Applicants must have achieved the following at the time of application to the B.F.A. in Studio Art:
• C or better in all major classes

Final Year

During their final year and in conjunction with the spring B.F.A. exhibition, students enroll in two sequential capstone courses: BFA Capstone I (fall) and II (spring). The courses outline the deadline and requirements for the B.F.A. exhibition as well as coordinating mentoring of B.F.A. candidates. If faculty deem their work insufficient, they reserve the right to exclude the work from the exhibition and withhold the B.F.A. degree. Students transferring to the Department of Visual and Literary Arts who have completed their foundation core and successfully passed portfolio review are eligible to apply for a B.F.A. in Studio Art after one semester in Art and Art History Program.
