SUBJECT: ART HISTORY EMPHASIS IN THE BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS
Because of national trends, the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD, the accrediting organization of Washburn's Art Department) has approved and recommended this combined BFA Degree, that permits students to pursue an emphasis in Art History in addition to the required studio courses. In order to be consistent with national trends the Art Department at Washburn, which is currently accredited by NASAD for both the BFA in studio and the BA in Art History, proposes establishing this emphasis in Art History for the BFA degree which would be noted on the transcript.
The complete proposal is attached.
The University Council approved the proposal on January 13, 2004.
The proposal was approved by the General Faculty on January 29, 2004.
FINANCIAL IMPLICATIONS: None
President Farley recommends Board of Regents approval of the Art History emphasis in the Bachelor of Fine Arts.
