DADAA - Towson University

Report
Scenius is like genius, only embedded in a scene rather than in genes.
Brian Eno suggested the word to convey the extreme creativity that
groups, places or "scenes" can occasionally generate. His actual
definition is: "Scenius stands for the intelligence and the intuition of a
whole cultural scene. It is the communal form of the concept of the
genius."
Individuals immersed in a productive scenius will blossom and produce
their best work. When buoyed by scenius, you act like genius. Your likeminded peers, and the entire environment inspire you.
CREATIVITY
Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by
originality, overcomes everything.
George Lois

BFA: the standard undergraduate degree for students seeking a professional
education in the visual or performing arts. Bachelor of Fine Arts, is also
identify in some countries the Bachelor of Creative Arts or BCA. Although a
BFA is traditionally conceiving a four-year degree, a BFA program may take
longer to over because of the amount of studio course work required.

MAJOR IN ART+DESIGN
BACHELOR OF FINE ARTS DEGREE (SCREENED PROGRAM)
BFA Screening
Students intending to pursue the BFA must first declare a major in the Art+Design B.S. program, then, when eligible, apply
for admission to a concentration in the B.F.A. program. The BFA in Art+Design is a competitive and screened major.
Interested students declare a BS concentration in their first year, and undergo screening by the specific BFA concentration at
the end of the term in which the screening prerequisites will be completed (usually in the student’s fourth term). Admission
into Towson University and declaration of a Art+Design BS/BA concentration does not guarantee acceptance into the BFA
Program. In some concentrations the number selected will be on a space-available basis. Requirements for application and
admission to the BFA program in Art+Design are:
A minimum of 39 units in the major
A 2.67 G.P.A. in ART courses.
A portfolio review (students obtain portfolio requirements for each BFA concentration from the department office or their
advisor)
•
•
Additional Requirements are as follows:
Graphic Design: Interested students declare the General Design Studies BS concentration in their first year, and undergo
screening by the Graphic Design program at the end of the term in which the screening prerequisites will be completed
(usually in the student’s fourth term). Successful completion of first level foundations and second level foundations (for the
Graphic Design BFA concentration) plus the requirements listed above, are needed to apply.
•
Digital Art and Design: Interested students declare the General Design Studies BS concentration in their first year, and
undergo screening by the DAD program at the end of the term in which the screening prerequisites will be completed.
Photo Imaging: 39 units in the major, and three 200 level Photo Imaging courses are needed to apply
Painting and Drawing: 39 units in the major, and two painting and/or drawing courses beyond first level foundations are
needed to apply.
•
•
•
Students should obtain application forms, deadlines, and other screening information from the department office (CA 3103)
at the beginning of the semester in which they will become eligible to apply. Students not granted admission may reapply
once. In some cases, exceptions to G.P.A. and/or grade requirements may be granted based on portfolio review and
interview; please obtain information on applying for an exception from the department office.

GENERAL DESIGN STUDIES TRACK (45 units)
•
The General Design Studies track is meant for students who seek to become engaged in design but do not intend to become
designers (the Graphic Design and Digital Art and Design tracks in the BS and BFA degree programs offer the specialization
and professional preparation needed for a career as a designer). The General Design Studies track seeks to produce
students who combine cross-disciplinary perspective with excellent research skills, a high level of visual literacy, and the
creative thinking and problem solving skills central to design. Toward that end, General Design Studies is well suited for
students who wish to combine study of design with a major in Mass Communication, Computer Science, or Business.
This short design-oriented track is in part intended to meet the needs of students wishing to double major, particularly with a
field to which study of design would be relevant.
The curriculum is designed to provide a foundation of digital and design courses, then to allow the student to choose (with
the help of an advisor required) additional design courses to meet their needs and interests.

GENERAL FINE ARTS TRACK (45 units)
The General Fine Arts track offers students a wide exposure to the fine arts disciplines represented in the
department, as part of a broad-based liberal arts curriculum. Currently, the shortest track in the Art + Design major
is 69 units, which is too large to make it feasible for most students wishing to double major. Many students would
like to pursue a fine art major as an avocation, while majoring also in something more practical. This proposed
short, general track should provide the opportunity to do so. This track is also intended as a stand alone major, for
students wanting a broad based liberal arts education. It is in keeping with the size of many other majors in the
university and college.
The track’s curriculum is designed to give a broad exposure to fine arts disciplines taught in the department, while
also allowing students an opportunity for three additional courses in a particular discipline, if they would like a
small degree of specialization.

Know your catalog year – discuss with your advisor possible changes
Prepare for your advising session - do NOT come in cold - set up a schedule
Make appointments at other times for other issues
If you do not know who your advisor is see Ginger Ross NOW - don’t wait.
Ask about changed courses and new courses - advisors may allow you to substitute new courses of interest to you
Graduating on time requires your diligence

Numerous courses have changed and prerequisites change as well - in most cases prerequisites for
registration will cover multiple catalog years - if you have a problem once registration starts, contact
your advisor
In many cases transfer students have multiple course equivalents and substitutions or exceptions sometimes these have not been processed or submitted and prerequisites are a problem - contact
your advisor and they can arrange an override for registration
DO NOT under any circumstances register or reserve list for multiple classes when you intend to take
only one of them - this causes a myriad of problems which have a cumlative effect on you - if you are
doing it to someone else, chances are someone will be doing it to you
We will no longer use class overflow lists
We may or may not use PeopleSoft wait lists on a limited basis
Ask, if you don’t know

Initial Transfer Evaluations are not specific to concentrations or even majors
It is critical that all transfer courses within your major are articulated. Or re-articulated, by your major
advisor
100 - 200 level courses from a 2 year school can be transferred as an equivalent for a 100-200 level
course at Towson
100 - 200 level courses from a 2 year school may also sometimes be deemed equivalents to higher
level courses without receiving upper level credits - this is concentration specific and usually not done
for core courses in a concentration - although there are exceptions
A course that is a lower level to lower level equivalent will automatcially fill the requirement for that
course in your DPR - a course that is a lower level to upper level equivalent will appear as a T##
course, which then needs to designated as an exception for a required course if applicable
An exception is when one course is substituted for another course that is a requirement in your
concentration or major. Exceptions are requested through your advisor.
Admission to the university does not guarantee admission to screened or competitive majors.
DADAA
Advising
Students that are admitted to the University before the 2010-2011 academic
year will have the option to opt into the 2010-2011 catalog and earn a
BFA. Nevertheless, students may also choose to stay with their catalog
and current program requirements - they will be honored.
See an advisor if your catalog is prior to 2010-2011 and you have not
declared a major or a concentration in Art + Design. For prior catalog
years in DAD and Illustration, your advisor would admit you if screening
does not apply. All Graphic Design majors are screened but different
catalog years have different program requirements.

Graphic Design, DAD and Illustration are screened concentrations from
this point forward. See an advisor in the area if you are in a prior catalog
