Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, Major in Art + Design

This is a screened program.

B.F.A. Screening

Students intending to pursue the B.F.A. must first declare a major in the Art + Design B.S. program, then, when eligible, apply for admission to a concentration in the B.F.A. program. The BFA in Art + Design is a competitive and screened major. Interested students declare a B.S. concentration in their first year, and undergo screening by the specific B.F.A. concentration at the end of the term in which the screening prerequisites will be completed (usually in the student’s fourth term). Admission into Towson University and declaration of an Art + Design B.S./B.A. concentration does not guarantee acceptance into the B.F.A. Program. In some concentrations the number selected will be on a space-available basis.
