Bachelor of Arts in Visual Art

The Bachelor of Art degree allows you to take your interest in art to major in art and take significant courses in another subject of interest. For example: you could study art and Spanish and serve as the art teacher in a bilingual school, or you could study art and business and use the business courses to help you understand a gallery business you are interested in starting. Whatever your secondary interest might be, a BA degree allows you to pursue it in undergraduate school while majoring in art.
