Course Planning

Who do I see for advising?

All Faculty members serve as Departmental Advisors. At the time of admission, a primary advisor is assigned. Once enrolled, a student is encouraged to select an advisor from their primary area of interest. Students work with their advisor to create a customized Plan of Study which guides course selection during the program and becomes the basis of the Senior Evaluation for graduation.

What is a Plan of Study?

A Plan of Study should be designed with a faculty advisor by the time a student reaches 90 University credits. The Plan of Study lists all the courses to be taken in the Art Department by Studio, Art Education and Art History majors up to graduation. It may be revised with the consent of the faculty advisor but must be finalized by the time of Senior Evaluation.

Can I graduate with the Art Education course Plan of Study without completing the Education courses and admission to Woodring?

The Art Education course study plan was designed to be completed prior to the Education course study plan in order to secure a teaching certificate, in Art Education. Students CANNOT graduate without completing the requirements of both programs.

How do I do a Senior Evaluation?

Two quarters before graduation, the Registrar will send you a notice to get a Senior Evaluation done on your major. First see your advisor to update your Plan of Study. Bring the Plan of Study to the department office. The Senior Evaluation will be done by department staff and signed by the department Chair. The student will then take the Senior Evaluation form and Plan of Study along with the Application for Graduation form to the Registrar's office.
