Areas of Study


Do you color yourself as a natural creative? Someone who seeks to deepen their understanding of art and humanity through enlightening moments, performances and expression in visual artifacts? If this describes you, then you may want to consider exploring a degree in studio art.

UTSA’s Art Program

UTSA’s Department of Art & Art History offers two distinct studio art degrees and is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. The B.A. focuses on foundation study, specializations in studio art practices, and a broad foundation in art history. the B.F.A. includes intensive studio coursework along with supportive studies in art history and criticism. The final two years will have you choose between a specialized area in one of the following: ceramics, new media, painting, drawing, photography, printmaking or sculpture. Whether you aspire to become a professional artist, fine arts educator, performer or scholar, a studio art degree from UTSA serves as the perfect opportunity to enhance your creative and contemporary pursuits under a close mentorship.
