We serve our students by focusing on their intellectual + creative growth, fostering their practice, and preparing them for lifetimes of accomplishment and meaningful contribution as culture creators. The program frames the individual needs of each student through the development of conceptual, aesthetic, and technical skills. While in the College of Visual Arts and Design, students participate in ideas and practices across disciplines while engaging in the critical practice of the fine artist.


The Department of Studio Art offers the BFA degree with a major in studio art and concentrations in ceramics, drawing and painting, metalsmithing and jewelry, new media art, photography, printmaking and sculpture. Students interested in these degrees may contact the department office.

Entering students

All students who are admitted to UNT who wish to major in Studio Art will be designated as Pre-Studio Art until they complete the entry review and are accepted into a concentration and will initially be advised by the office of Student Services. Admission to the university does not guarantee admission to the major.

Entry into Concentrations

Students are able to apply to concentrations by portfolio entry review in order to major in studio art. Students can apply
after completion of their foundation courses (Drawing I, Drawing II, Design I, Design II) and completed 9 hours of 2000-level or higher studio art courses. Of those 9 hours, at least one 2000-level or higher course must be in the concentration they wish to pursue with a “B” or better grade. For detailed information:
