The Academic Program

The Department of Art (ART) offers two separate but interrelated programs. Art history, leading to the BA, affords the opportunity to study the arts of Asia, Pacific, and the West in a historical and cultural context. The art studio programs provide students either with a broad-based, liberal arts approach via the BA or with a more focused studio specialization leading to the BFA. The latter is considered more appropriate for students intending to pursue the MFA at the graduate level.
The department is housed in an excellent three-story facility with painting studios, photography and computer labs, and fully equipped printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, fiber, and glass facilities. The University of Hawai'i Art Gallery is a prominent feature of the department's programs. Six or seven major exhibitions are presented each year, many of which have received national recognition.

Advising

Advising is mandatory for all art majors. For advising see the associate chair in Art 142A, e-mail: frank@hawaii.edu

Undergraduate Study

BA Degree

This broad-based art degree provides students with a choice of a studio focus, where a wide range of visual arts media can be explored, or an art history focus, where the visual arts are studied in a historical context.

Requirements

Studio Focus

Students must complete 48 credit hours, including:

  • 9 credits of art core: ART 201 and 6 credits of 113, 115, 116
  • 27 credits of art studio: 18 credits must be upper division
  • 12 credits of art history: 6 credits at the upper division level

Students interested in pursuing a teaching career in elementary and secondary art education should seek advisement from the College of Education.

Art History Focus

Students must complete 42 credit hours, including:

  • 11 art history courses (33 credit hours), including ART 171, 172, 180, and 290
  • Three studio classes (9 credit hours), selected in consultation with adviser

BFA Degree

The BFA degree in art is designed for those students who desire a focused preparation in the visual arts or who intend to pursue an advanced degree or career in art. Areas of specialization include ceramics, fiber, glass, graphic design, photography, painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Students are encouraged to cross media boundaries, and qualified students may opt to construct an individualized plan of study with faculty guidance and approval. 

Students seeking admission to candidacy for the BFA must pass a portfolio review, which can take place only after the following requirements have been met.

1. Completion of art core through 201.
2. Completion of art history requirements: ART 171, 172, 180, and 290 (or equivalent).
3. Completion of one 200-level studio elective not in student's chosen area.
4. Completion of 9 credit hours in chosen area with an average of B or better.
5. Completion of 18 credits in University core requirements exclusive of art department courses.

Applications for review are due on September 1 for the spring and January 20 for the fall. 

Requirements

Students must complete 75 credit hours, including:

  • Eight media concentration courses (24 credit hours), as indicated by the program area at the time of declaration (last 9 credit hours must be completed at Manoa)
  • Five art core courses (15 credit hours): 113, 115, 116, 201, 302
  • Six art history courses (18 credit hours): ART 171, 172, 180, 290, and two electives
