The Department of Art & Art History will not be offering classes at the Stamford regional campus in the coming academic year (2017-18). Prospective students are encouraged to apply to either Storrs (main campus) or Stamford regional campus.
WHY START AT STAMFORD?
There are lots of good reasons to start at Stamford. Small classes provide a supportive learning environment and the campus has a tight-knit and lively student community. Many UConn Stamford students live at home, which can be the right decision personally and financially.
Stamford Studio Art students will work closely with Professor Pam Bramble of the Department of Art and Art History. With over twenty years of experience at UConn, Professor Bramble is an outstanding mentor and teacher. She supports her students’ creative and intellectual development, and sets them on the path to success in the arts. Additional courses are supported by other full-time faculty in Stamford or by our carefully selected adjunct faculty in Studio Art. All faculty, full-time or adjunct, hold terminal degrees in their fields of study.
Students will be able to complete fifteen credits of Studio Art classes plus three credits of Art History. Professor Bramble teaches Drawing 1, Drawing 2, Basic Studio Painting, and Art Appreciation. Waterbury will also offer Basic Studio: Photography and Studio Foundations: Criticism and Interpretation on a regular basis. While starting the BFA degree at Waterbury, students can make excellent progress on their General Education requirements because the campus offers a full range of classes in the sciences, social sciences, and humanities.
HOW DO I APPLY?
Prospective freshman students can apply through the Common Application and indicate that they are applying for the BFA Degree in Studio Art either at Storrs or Stamford. An online portfolio is required for entry to the program at either campus (click here for details). Current regional-campus applicants or enrolled UConn students who are undeclared or in a different major but who would like to start the BFA Studio Art degree at Storrs should contact the Department of Art & Art History Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-486-3930.
HOW DO I MAKE A CAMPUS CHANGE TO STORRS IF I ATTEND STAMFORD REGIONAL CAMPUS?
The transfer to Storrs is seamless. After completing 54 credits at Stamford, students work with the Stamford Registrar’s Office to complete a Campus Change. No further portfolio review or application process is necessary.
The UConn Department of Art & Art History is a leading Studio Art program nationally. It offers rich opportunities for Study Abroad, internships, and professional development in the arts. Beginning your degree at Stamford can be the ideal beginning to a BFA in Studio Art.
