You will be exposed to a wide variety of art experiences through studio and gallery tours, extensive lectures and workshops by internationally recognized visiting artists and professional exhibitions in The Gallery.
As an art major, you must successfully complete two introductory computer graphics classes (ART 211 and 221).
You will be required to successfully complete a writing-intensive course in AH 370 or in an upper division studio course within your major concentration, as directed by your advisor.
Cooperative Education Program
The co-op program combines classroom and practical work experience. As a co-op student, you will gain valuable experience in a professional work environment. You will be paid and will also receive college credit.
You may enrich your major by electing studio courses through the Consortium or in summer sessions at other institutions. However, you are required to take the core sequence at Marygrove.
If you wish to take courses at other institutions, complete a guest student application and obtain written approval from the department prior to registering. This must be done in order that the credits you earn may be applied to your degree.
Only courses with a grade of C or higher may be applied in fulfillment of the major requirements.
If you transfer from another institution into the department as an art major, you must complete 20 hours of credit in the department before graduating. As a transfer student, you may be asked to complete specific studio problems, as well as present a portfolio of recent work to determine placement in departmental courses.
