The B.A. in Art at UIU provides a base for the pursuit of a master's in art or a Master of Fine Arts degree. These graduate degrees allow artists to teach in higher education or develop lifestyles as artists with their own studios. The preparation of portfolios and advice about different graduate school programs is part of this emphasis.
