About the BFA

As a part of the BFA in Studio Art (2D) the Printmaking Program provides a complete studio experience with courses in intaglio, lithography, screenprint, relief, monoprinting and papermaking. Emphasis is placed on both traditional and exploratory techniques and concepts, including monoprint, combination of print and non-print methods and photo-print processes. No style, technique or aesthetic approach is stressed over another so that the individual quality of the student’s work is the essential measure of achievement. Undergraduate Studio Art majors are provided with a workshop environment conducive to artistic growth which is coupled with a sound, well-rounded background in the concepts, history and craft of printmaking. Graduating students are prepared to pursue graduate school, to pursue teaching licensure, to work as an independent artist or illustrator or undertake printer training in a specialized program. All students are encouraged to pursue opportunities for artist growth by attending conferences and outside workshops.
