Supplemental Information for BA with a Major in Art

Senior Exit Review

A portfolio or final review is required of all seniors in the School of Visual Arts prior to graduation in order to establish that basic competencies are met. To ensure that sufficient competence is developed to successfully complete the exit review, students should take at least two advanced courses from the same area of art. The review for BA with a major in art degree candidates will be held at midterm during the final long semester of their enrollment. Reviews will not be conducted during summer sessions.

Procedure

1. During the first week of the last long semester prior to graduation, students whose work needs to be reviewed will identify themselves to the Director of SOVA Undergraduate Programs (Art Building, Room 111). Students will be provided a timetable and specific information regarding arrangements for the review.

2. Students will choose one of the following methods of assessment:

3. Studio work will be reviewed by the Director of the Undergraduate Program, the Coordinator of the Basic Drawing Program and the Coordinator of the Basic Design Program, plus one faculty member of the student's choice. Art history assessment will be conducted by the Art History Area Coordinator.

Results

Failure to participate in the review or presentation of unsatisfactory work will delay graduation.
