How We Meet the Needs of Our Students
The School of Art provides a professional advisor and faculty mentors to meet the needs of our students.
When you begin as a student, you will be assigned to our professional staff advisor for all primary advising (clearing registration holds, discussing graduation requirements, etc). You will be assigned a faculty mentor after you pass a portfolio review to take upper-level classes. At this point, you will be expected to meet with your faculty mentor at least once per year.
The UT School of Art offers undergraduate work leading to degree completion in B.F.A. Studio Art (2D, 3D or 4D concentrations), B.A. Art, or B.A. Art History. We also offer minors in Studio Art and Art History. UT also offers a B.A. Interdisciplinary Program with a concentration in Cinema Studies. This program also offers a minor in Cinema Studies.
