Program Philosophy

The B.F.A. in Integrative Studio Practice (ISP) is a professional undergraduate degree for students desiring the flexibility to pursue studies in more than one area to achieve their individual, artistic goals. Students in the program develop critical thinking skills, refine their intellectual and creative processes, and learn both traditional and contemporary aspects of artistic practice.

The ISP Program allows students to participate in a wide range of studies without the need to specify a single medium. Through careful counseling, individual goals and directions are established, and the students assisted in setting up a well-coordinated program of arts studies. The flexibility of this program enables
the student to combine studies in Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Printmaking, Sculpture, Furniture Design, etc., to achieve objectives in keeping with specific goals. Opportunities following graduation are essentially the same as for students identifying with a single program.
