Bachelor of Arts / Bachelor of Fine Arts / Minors

Major Programs

There are two undergraduate major programs at the USC Roski School of Art and Design: Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) and Bachelor of Arts (BA).

Both degrees typically take four years to complete and feature small classes, internship and study-abroad opportunities, and the flexibility to customize a unique studio curriculum. With 330 art majors and 70 part- and full-time faculty members, students at the Roski School are assured not only a wide choice of classes, but also a degree of personal attention in an intimate atmosphere that is unique among art programs.

Students from two-year and four-year institutions outside of USC are welcome to apply to the USC Roski School of Art and Design for the fall, and transfer students can apply for either the BFA or the BA degree program. For more, please take a look at this information for transfer students.

Minor Programs

USC Roski School of Art and Design offers a number of minors as a supplement to major fields of specialization in other departments and schools. There are seven intensive studio minors, each focusing on a different area within Art and Design. In addition, we offer an interdisciplinary minor in Communication Design that shares courses in advertising, marketing, and business; 2-D Art for Games + 3-D Art for Games that share courses in computer science and interactive media. The School of Art and Design also participates in two interdisciplinary minors in the School of Engineering: Interactive Multimedia and 3-D Animation.
