PROPOSED CHANGES IN THE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS, DESIGN MAJOR IN THE COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS SECTION IN THE FINE ARTS SECTION OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

The following changes are proposed for requirements given on page 206 of the College of Fine Arts section of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2000-2002:

DESIGN MAJOR

1. Basic education requirements: At least thirty-nine semester hours as described on page 204.
2. Studio art: Twenty-one semester hours, consisting of Studio Art 301K, 301L, 302K, 302L, and nine additional semester hours of studio art.
3. Design: Forty-five semester hours, consisting of Design 370 with a grade of at least [B] C and approval of the design faculty; Design 371 with a grade of at least [B] C and approval of the design faculty; and thirty-nine additional hours of design, of which at least twenty-four must be upper-division. Approval of the design faculty is required before the student may begin upper-division design courses. A student with transfer credit in design must have approval of the design faculty before taking upper-division design courses at the University.
4. Art history: Twelve semester hours, consisting of Art History 302, 303, and six semester hours of upper-division art history.
5. Electives: Three semester hours chosen from courses either within or outside the Department of Art and Art History

Total requirements for the degree: 120 semester hours as outlined above.

 

Justification: The design faculty feel that the failure to earn a B in Design 370 or Design 371 should not prevent a student, who has otherwise succeeded within the program, from earning the degree.
