IVA Undergraduate Degree Requirements

 The Interdisciplinary Visual Arts program offers a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree, with an option to pursue Honors in Art.

Coursework can be completed in the fields of ceramics, glass, fibers, drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, design and art history. You may wish to focus your work in one or two areas, or you might choose to study broadly within the available course offerings. You might also investigate related areas such as film studies, architecture, business, comparative history of ideas, digital arts and experimental media, and computer science. 

To graduate with an undergraduate degree from the University of Washington, students must successfully complete at least 180 course credits: a combination of major requirements (listed below), general education requirements, and electives.

Admission to the major is based on completion of prerequisite courses and GPA.
