Bachelor of Art (BA)
Art and Art History (general Art)
The BA allows students to gain a foundation in both studio art and art history, and
then select a variety of upper level elective courses, focusing on their own areas
of interest. Students in the BA program also choose a second major or minor, and a
foreign language, allowing them to make connections between art and other areas of
study, and to understand art in the context of a larger world.
The program is enhanced by the presence of the Fine Art Museum at WCU, which offers an exciting exhibition program, visiting artist series and the possibility of student internships and courses in museum practices. Our library has an extensive collection of art books and magazines as well as subscriptions to important image databases and on-line scholarly resources.
