Curriculum in Integrated Studio Arts—B.F.A.

Administered by the Department of Art and Design and leading to a 120.5 credit undergraduate Bachelor of Fine Arts in Integrated Studio Arts including a 29.5 credit pre-professional program (the college core).

Consideration for admission into the Integrated Studio Arts program is based upon departmental resources; GPA earned in the College Core courses and in the freshman year; as well as a portfolio, all of which are submitted at the end of the freshman year.

Transfer students with studio credits from other programs, colleges, and universities must present for department review a portfolio of work done in those courses in order to have the credits apply toward studio requirements. Students are required to present this portfolio upon admission and prior to registration for classes. Arrangements for this process must be made with department advisers.

On admission to the program, if the student wishes to pursue studies in digital media and or photography, the faculty strongly recommend the purchase of a laptop computer and software. Specifications for the laptop computer and software are available at www.design.iastate.edu under the “Students” link
