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 photography at BYU-Idaho receive instruction in technical skills and aesthetic and theoretical approaches to photography. Our students will be prepared to take advantage of opportunities in the fields of commercial photography, fine art photography, and small business ownership.
