The Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree is the standard art degree. All students who major in studio art will choose an emphasis area: 2D, 3D, Graphic Design, Illustration, or Photography. Those that don't pursue the BFA degree, stay in this degree. This degree has open enrollment and doesn't require an application or portfolio for admission.
Students who study Illustration at BYU-Idaho receive instruction in technical, aesthetic, and industry standards pertaining to Illustration. BA Illustration students will be prepared to exhibit a portfolio of work specific to their chosen market.
