Advising

  • All visual arts majors who have passed the portfolio review are advised first by the Undergraduate Program Director for Visual Arts. Majors who have not yet passed the review are advised by the Office of Academic and Pre-Professional Advising.

  • A Visual Arts Advising Form is completed at the first advising session; this lists the Visual Arts requirements and University requirements for graduation.

  • Advising forms are updated at every advising session, showing progress toward the degree.

  • After earning 45 - 60 credits, students are assigned to a faculty advisor who teaches in their selected concentration.

  • Advisors are assigned in early November and early April, and the assignments are posted in the Fine Arts Office (FA 111), FA 108, and to the visual arts listserv.

  • Advisors will discuss a student's proposed course schedule, and can provide information about internships, independent study, study abroad opportunities and academic progress.

  • All other academic advising information is available on the UMBC StudentLink
