New Bachelor of Fine Arts fills student demand


This fall, UNG’s first Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree program in visual arts will expand opportunities for students. The bachelor’s degree program requires the completion of the foundation courses in visual arts including Two-Dimensional Design/Color, Drawing I, Three-Dimensional Design, and one course in a chosen studio area.

The new program will take UNG’s visual arts program to another level by offering students a greater number of art courses, a greater number of courses in their areas of concentration and more professional development coursework.

”When we change to the BFA in visual arts, each student will have an individual art exhibition,” Dr. Pamela Sachant, head of the visual arts department at UNG, said. “Students will leave with a portfolio to show future employers and clients.”

The new degree program is more desirable than a traditional bachelor of arts degree, especially for those who plan to apply to a master’s degree program.
