Other Program Requirements

  • Must earn a minimum grade of “C” in all ART/ARTS/ARTH courses.
  • Must successfully complete prerequisites for courses and take courses in proper sequence.
  • All BFSDoArt programs have been written to allow students to complete their major or minor at either the Armstrong campus or Statesboro campus with no travel.  However, because the campuses have different resources and faculty expertise, the possibility to travel off of their home campus to enrich their education is an exciting possibility.
