What research has led to this request?
The development of a BFA in Visual Art necessitates the need for this type of course for our majors. This is a standard course for a BFA degree and is generally recommended by our accrediting body, NASAD.
What impact will this request have on existing academic programs?
This course will help students develop their professional portfolio (CV, artist statement, web and social presence, etc), as well as the critical interpretations of their creative works.
What financial costs are associated with this request?
There should be a $50 lab fee for this course. A general lab fee will assist by helping cover the cost associated with color toner cartridges for printers, paper, and general art supplies.
If NO change in cost is anticipated, how is this possible?
