B.S./B.A. in Art + Design - Fine Arts Track

The Fine Arts track is meant for students who seek a wide, interdisciplinary exposure to the various fine arts disciplines represented in the department rather than individual specialization in a single area. The shorter degree track (42 required units compared with 81 for the BFA or 54-60 units for the B.S./B.A. in a fine art concentration) accommodates students who wish to pursue a broader-based liberal arts degree program, and allows for a customized plan of study, whether through the addition of a second major, minor or elective sequence in consultation with an adviser. The Fine Arts track seeks to produce students who are equipped to address visual ideas in a range of media, and who confidently explore and connect with ideas from outside visual art disciplines through art making.

Art majors in the Fine Arts track complete 42 units, including 21 units in first-level foundations courses, 15 units in required courses, and 6 units in elective courses. 24 of those units in ART and ARTH courses must be completed at Towson.
