Bachelor of Arts

General

Program Description

Xavier's Bachelor of Arts degree (52 credit hours​) challenges students to create meaningful art that explores contemporary issues. An art degree is of special interest to students who desire to pursue beyond the other liberal arts disciplines and/or licensure for teaching pre-K through 12th grade art. Professional development of our students is promoted inside and outside of the classroom in all of our 11 areas of concentration.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree (73 credit hours) differs from the Bachelor of Arts degree by its intensity, structure and required number of studio hours in art. It is a “higher degree” than the B.A. and acknowledges that its recipient had experienced a deeper involvement in art.

Concentrations Offered:

Art Education, Art History, Ceramics, Drawing, Fiber Arts, Graphic Design, Painting, Photography, Pre-Art Therapy, Printmaking and Sculpture
