*The Pathways curriculum is typically 42 credits. However, the Art BFA major includes a course (ARTD 1010) that also satisfies a Pathways requirement. Therefore, students majoring in Art BFA only need to complete 39 additional Pathways credits.
Admission to the B.F.A. degree program should be obtained prior to the completion of 26 credits in studio art. An art portfolio is required. Consult the Art Department for procedures.
The department chair, with the approval of the chair of the department's undergraduate curriculum committee, may allow substitutions for one or more of these requirements consistent with the educational goals of the program.
The four-year degree map is designed to help you take the right courses in the right order so you can graduate in four years. It also helps you distinguish what courses qualify as Pathways courses, or Major courses, or General Elective courses. Ideally, you should follow the four-year degree map as closely as possible, but you are free to make some adjustments so long as the prerequisite requirements are satisfied.
In conjunction with the four-year degree map, you should review Degree Works, and the Brooklyn College website, for an approved list of courses in your major. Overall, it is best to review your academic plan with your advisor on a regular basis.
