Department of Art
James Parlin, MFA
Edinboro University offers two different Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees—a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Studio Arts and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Applied Media Arts. Any student who is accepted into the University may begin a BFA degree program and take the necessary introductory courses. However, these students must apply for Candidacy and be accepted in order to continue in the major.
The application for Candidacy in BFA programs takes place after all introductory courses in the major concentration have been completed, generally sometime during the sophomore year. Students who are not accepted for Candidacy in one concentration may apply for Candidacy in another concentration, or they may choose another major in the University. Students apply for Candidacy by submitting a portfolio of artwork, following the guidelines set forth in the current Art Department student handbook, including the requirements and deadlines for submission of portfolios to each area of concentration.
