Admission Requirements

To be admitted in good standing, applicants (incoming freshmen and transfer students) must meet general University academic requirements. Applicants to the Art & Design program must also submit a portfolio of artworks and additional supporting materials, as described below, for review by Art & Design faculty:

1. Art & Design Portfolio form. Complete the form and send in with your packet. (Form is online at http://www4.uwm.edu/psoa/artdesign/admission)

2. Portfolio of artworks. The portfolio should ideally include 8-10 examples of the applicant's artwork (digital images on CD only), preferably from courses taken over the last two years. Include at least three drawings from observations (not from photographs).   Label the digital images on CD with artist's name, media, size, and year of completion. Do not send actual work samples.

3. Copy of high school transcript or, for transfer students, college transcript(s). Unofficial copies are acceptable for this purpose.

4. Personal statement (one or two pages) describing how your past experiences, interests, and concerns relate to your college choice and career goals. Students who have not had significant prior exposure to formal art courses, or who do not have a portfolio of artworks to submit, are encouraged to write more extensive personal statements. The Department of Art & Design will accept students who do not have an art background but have a desire to learn.

5. Two confidential letters of recommendation, preferably from instructors familiar with the student's artwork and/or academic ability. Letters should be submitted in sealed envelopes and will remain confidential and the property of the Department of Art & Design.

Art & Design applicants must submit their portfolios as one complete packet containing all of the above items, and may do so in person or by mail to the address indicated below. Portfolios should NOT be submitted along with the initial application for admission to the University.  Art & Design continues to accept students until UWM capacity is met.

Art & Design awards art scholarships based on this incoming portfolio.  To be considered for art scholarships, the portfolio submission deadline is February 15.  Art & Design scholarship notification will be in March.

Area of Concentration Requirements and Enrollment Management

In order to maintain the highest quality of service to our students, all areas (Ceramics, Cross-Disciplinary Studio, Digital Studio Practice, Fibers, Jewelry and Metalsmithing, Painting and Drawing, Photography, Print and Narrative Forms, Sculpture, Design and Visual Communication and Art Education) may select their own enrollment management mechanisms. Options available to areas include portfolio review, gateway courses, registration prioritizing (ex: "seniors only" and/or "majors only" courses), higher GPA for the area of concentration, or other appropriate mechanisms. Students who successfully matriculate as BFA degree candidates should make themselves familiar with the requirements of their chosen area (as outlined in the undergraduate catalog). Students also should discuss area requirements with area faculty to ensure that they understand fully what will be required of them.

Appeal Process

An appeal process is established for students who do not meet the department's criteria for admissions, classification, GPA, and area of concentration enrollment management requirements. The appeal process will provide an opportunity for individual students to request admission as an art major or enrollment into courses as exceptions to the department's enrollment policies based on defined, pre-determined conditions. All appeals are to be directed to the undergraduate advisor or PSOA advisor, who will forward the appeals to the department chair or appropriate appeals committee. The department chair or appeals committee will consult with the Foundations Director, area head, faculty, advisors, and student if necessary before making a decision.

Degree Programs

BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS (STUDIO ART)

This undergraduate degree prepares students for entrance into professional art fields. Once students meet the Pre-Art Foundations requirements outlined above, they are admitted to the Art & Design program. In addition to satisfying the core curriculum, art students select studio courses from both 2D and 3D disciplines, take required art history courses, choose studio electives, and begin satisfying the requirements of their declared art area concentration. A choice of curricula is offered to permit students to concentrate in ceramics, cross-disciplinary studio, digital studio practice, fibers, jewelry and metalsmithing, painting and drawing, photography, print and narrative forms, or sculpture. Students must complete a minimum of 24 credits in their area of concentration but may take more by choosing additional studio electives in their area. In order to graduate, students must complete a 3-credit critical thinking course, a 3-credit capstone: Art 604 Professional Practices (2 cr.) and Art 605 BFA Exhibition (1 cr.). Students must complete a total of 75 credits of art to graduate with a BFA (Studio Art).

BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS (STUDIO ART) IN DESIGN AND VISUAL COMMUNICATION (130-Credit BFA Degree)

Students in Design and Visual Communication are required to have a laptop computer for their course work by the first week of class, beginning with Art 221 (Introduction to Design) and for all subsequent courses in Design and Visual Communication. Visit http://www4.uwm.edu/psoa/laptop for more information.

To be admitted into Design and Visual Communication, students must pass Design and Visual Communication Portfolio Review after completing Art 124 (Design Survey), Art 221 (Introduction to Design) and Art 223 (Introduction to Typography) with a B- or better, a cumulative 2.67 GPA, and admission to Art & Design.

After admission into Design and Visual Communication, students must:

a. Complete Art 321 (GD I) and Art 323 (Typography II) with grade of B- or better to enroll in Art 421 and Art 423.
b. Complete Art 421 (GD II) and Art 422 (Design Methodologies) with a grade of B- or better to enroll in Art 529.
c. Complete Art 529 (Graphic Design III) as Senior Capstone Experience with a grade of B- or better.
d. Complete Art 606 (BFA Exhibition in Design) concurrently with Art 529.
e. Complete Art 324 (Web Design) and Art 325 (Multimedia Design) with a grade of B- or better (these required courses are not part of the core sequence, and may be taken any time after prerequisites are met).
f. Complete two of the four following courses (6 credits): Art 422 (Design Methodologies), Art 426 (Motion Graphics), Art 427 (Advanced Design Workshop) or Art 524 (Professional Practice) with a grade of B- or better.
g. Complete 9 credits of Graphic Design Expanded Studies (ES) all outside the Peck School of the Arts with a grade of C or better. See your advisor in the Peck School of the Arts Student Services Office for an updated list of recommended courses.

Students may petition to substitute for some or all of these courses. Likely candidates would be students with a high GPA who have passed out of freshman English; double majors; and students with a keen and credible interest in another area of study. Petitions to substitute for courses will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by Design faculty and will be subject to an appeals process.

Grading Requirements


Subsequent to admission as a Design and Visual Communication major, a student receiving a grade of less than a B- in any of the area required courses must retake the class to continue in the program. Upon receiving a second grade of less than a B- in any of the area required courses, the student will be dropped from the Design and Visual Communication program.

They are required to take studio courses from both 2D and 3D disciplines, and to focus their choices of studio electives to develop an emphasis in an area. In addition to top-notch studio preparation in a wide range of media, our students focus on urban issues and art education for social justice. Theory is integrated into practical early field and student teaching experiences. Throughout the program assessment is aligned with the requirements for licensure under “PI-34,” the state law governing certification in Wisconsin. Students who demonstrate mastery of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions of professional educators during student teaching are recommended to the Department of Public Instruction in the State of Wisconsin for a PK4-12 teaching license.
