UML offers a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in art with a concentration in either Design or Fine Arts and an emphasis in: animation, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, graphic design, web design, and interactive-media. The Art Major at UMass Lowell is designed to develop the artistic and aesthetic talents of students through a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) program that meets the National Association of Schools of Art and Design accreditation requirements. The Art Department also offers a minor program in studio art. A minor in studio art consists of 18-24 credits selected in accordance with the following specifications: 15-21 credits must be completed in studio art courses and at least one Aesthetics and Critical Studies course must be completed. Two courses of the minor must be at the 300 level or above. In either case, a discriminating appreciation of art and the technical knowledge for succeeding as educated artists is the goal. The UMass Lowell Art Major provides students the opportunity to prepare for careers in the applied art fields (animation, graphic design, interactive-media, and web design), the fine arts (including painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture), and/or museum research and gallery work and further study at the graduate level.
