The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is recognized as the professional degree in the arts. The BFA, and the professional portfolios developed through the program, may lead students to career opportunities in teaching; digital and interactive design; studio work; museum, gallery, or corporate curatorship. The BFA may also offer students the opportunity to pursue advanced degrees to develop their creative and academic abilities.
