BFA Major in Sculpture

Program Objective

The Sculpture program incorporates contemporary genres with divergent approaches to the discipline, ranging from performance to video installation, built environments, and 3Ddigital applications, on to convergences of these ideas to the notion of intervention practices. Within the Fine Arts curriculum, these courses offer the opportunity for intensive study in both practical and theoretical contexts encouraging students to explore the relationships between object, material, body, and space. Such creative investigation, allied with technical proficiency, provides the base for students to develop an understanding of a broad range of sculptural issues. Courses are available at all levels, including independent study for advanced students wishing to focus on a single topic or project. To enrich their artistic training, students concentrating in other areas of Fine Arts may also take most courses offered in sculpture.
