bfa or ba?
Studies lead either to the Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) or to the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Media Arts degree. Both degrees offer concentrations in graphic design, photography, television/video production and interaction design.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is more specialized and intensive in the areas of concentration, with 78 credits of Media Arts coursework. The degree suits those who are clear that they wish to pursue a career in one of the four concentration areas, although they do not have to choose one until the sophomore year.
The Bachelor of Arts degree, in contrast, has 54 credits of Media Arts coursework. The remaining 24 credits are converted into open electives, allowing students to pursue a minor or broaden their studies into other areas of interest. The B.A. degree also allows transfer students to gain maximum advantage for credits completed at other institutions.
