Studio art majors explore various media in their foundation courses and also concentrate in an area of interest to fully develop a professional portfolio.
The BFA in Studio Art is designed for students seeking a degree in an art-related field or in preparation for graduate studies. Through a multi-disciplined curriculum, you are given a framework on which to build your academic and artistic career. You'll enjoy small classes and personal attention, and you will be poised to join the ranks of accomplished Endicott's studio art alumni who are talented and savvy individuals with a strong sense of purpose.
All courses are delivered in a state-of-the-art facility with access to the latest technology, 3-D printer and laser cutter, private studio spaces, a student gallery, maker space, and three professional galleries that provide venues for visiting artists and students to exhibit their work. Through coursework and internships, you will become professionally engaged and introduced to museum and gallery practices, exhibition design, marketing techniques, and the roles of curators and art directors.
What makes us unique is that in the junior year, each studio art major is required to take two courses called Advanced Art Studio and Portfolio and Professional Practices. These two pre-professional courses are both introspective and practical; they help students develop connections within their imagery while they learn how to present their work to galleries, apply for grants, and apply for commissions. Each student will develop a website and a gallery catalog in preparation for entry into their field of interest or to pursue the terminal degree, the Master of Fine Arts.
Studio art majors can choose from four concentrations.
