BFA in Art: Alternative Media

This major is for those who want to produce or study art that may fall outside the traditional boundaries of other studio areas.

New media such as video art, computer-generated works and installation art currently are top choices for this program. Although, performance art represents another option for those looking to present live theatre-like art in non-theatrical settings.

Students pursuing a BFA with an emphasis in Alternative Media are required to complete 15 credit hours in art history, 64 credit hours in studio courses and three credit hours writing a BFA thesis.

Advanced standing in the BFA program normally is granted after a student submits an application and has his/her work reviewed by the faculty. This process takes places one year prior to graduation.

If you plan on majoring in art, dance, music, or theatre, you must complete a portfolio review or audition as part of your application to Webster.
