Create your own vision of success

Here’s where you need to be if you plan to create for a living or help others learn to create – the extra emphasis on studio courses with the BFA in Studio program will give you the tools you need. It’s an intense program designed to help you develop not only technical expertise, but also a solid commitment to artistic quality and enhanced creative judgment.

During junior year, you’ll present current examples of your work to the faculty to be accepted into the Senior Show BFA coursework for senior year. You’ll have the opportunity to shine your senior year via participation in the Senior Show, which culminates in a one-person exhibition in Loyola’s Collins C. Diboll Gallery.

With a BFA in studio art, Loyola students have excelled in such professions as art education, graphic design, scenic animation, calligraphy, and medical illustration.
