2016-17 Academic Catalog

Department of Art

Department Head: Jamie Mixon
Office: 102 Freeman

Mission

The Department of Art’s primary undergraduate responsibilities include educating professional artists with concentrations in Fine Arts, Graphic Design, and Photography; preparing students for a career or advanced study; offering courses that fulfill University requirements; and providing an active art gallery to serve the University, the community, and region.

Bachelor of Fine Arts

The Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree is a professional studio degree. The B.F.A. degree is earned after successful completion of an intensive, 4 year program that provides the student with a series of in-depth studio experiences leading to thesis/senior presentation balanced by studies in humanities, communication, mathematics, and sciences.

The B.F.A. degree may also serve as a preparation for graduate studies-usually the Master of Fine Arts degree in studio art or design.

Admission

Art-Undeclared (UART) - All students desiring to major in art will be admitted into Art-Undeclared in the Department of Art at Mississippi State University. Students will declare their concentration following successful passage of the Foundation Portfolio Review in that concentration.

Concentrations

In the Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, a student may choose a concentration from the following: Fine Arts, Graphic Design, and Photography.

Transfer Requirements

After successful admission to the University, and before applying for the Foundation Portfolio Review, transfer students must submit work to the Transfer Portfolio Review so to articulate art studio and history credits. This review requires the presentation of a comprehensive portfolio of artwork completed in studio courses, as well as course descriptions (and in some cases, syllabi) from classes completed for credit at other institutions. This review takes place before the preregistration advising period each semester. The MSU Department of Art reserves the right to deny or accept transfer courses as applicable to the B.F.A. degree based on portfolio evaluation.

Foundation Portfolio Review Requirements

All Art majors are required to participate in the Foundation Portfolio Review. The review is a faculty evaluation of student work from a minimum of 18 credit hours completed in the following courses: Drawing I, Drawing II, Design I, Design II, 3-D Design, and Introduction to Computing for Art and possibly additional art courses.

For students interested in the Fine Arts concentration (Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, and Sculpture), the Foundation Portfolio Review will take place in the spring semester of each year. The Foundation Portfolio Review will result in an “accept” or “deny” into the selected emphasis.

For students interested in the Photography concentration, the Foundation Portfolio Review will take place at the beginning of each semester. The Foundation Portfolio Review will result in an “accept” or “deny” into the Photography concentration.

For students interested in Graphic Design, the Foundation Portfolio Review for entrance into that concentration will take place in the fall semester of each year. The Foundation Portfolio Review will result in an “accept” or “deny” in the Graphic Design concentration.

Students accepted (by faculty evaluation) into the Photography concentration or  Fine Arts concentration may begin the concentration sequence of courses. Students denied may remain in the art program and resubmit a portfolio in the next Review. Students cannot pursue a Photography concentration or Fine Arts concentration in which they have been denied twice. They will have to choose another concentration in order to pursue a B.F.A. in Art at Mississippi State.

Students accepted (by faculty evaluation) into the Graphic Design concentration may begin the concentration sequence of courses. Students denied may remain in the art program and may resubmit a portfolio in the Review offered the following year. Students denied cannot take concentration courses in Graphic Design until they resubmit a portfolio and are accepted into the program. Students denied twice cannot pursue a Graphic Design concentration. He or she will have to choose another concentration to pursue a B.F.A. in Art at Mississippi State.

Only the top students in the Review will be accepted into the Graphic Design concentration. Contact the Advising Coordinator for more information.

Senior Presentation Requirements

Senior Graphic Design students are required to present a portfolio and present an exhibition.  Senior students in the other concentrations are required to present an exhibition as degree requirements. These final presentation requirements are fulfilled in capstone courses; ART 4640 Advanced Graphics for students in the Graphic Design concentration; ART 4083 Senior Research and ART 4093 Senior Thesis for students in the Fine Arts concentration area; and ART 4583 Photographic Portfolio and ART 4593 Photographic Portfolio II for students in the Photography concentration.

Computer and Camera Requirements

The Department of Art requires incoming B.F.A. Art majors to purchase certain technology and equipment necessary for production and presentation of artwork within departmental courses. All incoming students are required to purchase a personal laptop computer and software upon enrollment into their first semester courses. The required computer and software must be selected from an approved departmental list of minimum hardware and software requirements available on the Department of Art web site.

Financial aid that includes this requirement may be available by contacting the MSU Student Financial Aid and Scholarship office.

The required camera must be selected from an approved departmental list of minimum specifications. The approved list is available on the Department of Art web site.
