is complete and filling quickly with the art and design students' plethora
of work. Studio spaces in the Bethune Center include printmaking, painting,

classroom and the David McCune International Art Gallery complete the
Methodist University's Department of Art offers courses of study leading
to the following degrees:
the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) with a concentration in:
ceramic sculpture, painting,
or printmaking, and
a B.A. licensure for teaching art in
the public schools.
the Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) degree is also offered
with a concentration in: graphic design.
AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Arts) and NASAD (National Association
of Schools of Art and Design) both promote the Bachelor of Fine Arts
as the preferred degree for students who want to enter professional
NASAD states, "Liberal arts programs are the most common undergraduate
degree in the United States. They place greater emphasis on general
education and lesser emphasis on studio design and visual arts studies
than professional degree programs. Normally, 30-45% of the total credits
are in art and design, with the remainder being course work across a
range of fields.
Methodist University has opted for the B.F.A. program for the graphic
design major to meet this preference of the AIGA and NASAD.
