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.

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. DADAA • • • • • • • 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. DADAA • • • MAJOR IN ART+DESIGN BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE (UNSCREENED PROGRAM) 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.

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.

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. DADAA Advising • • • • New Concentration in Interactive and Web Design : Coming Soon New Area of Focus within Digital Art and Design : Game Design New Concentration in Interdisciplinary Object Design New Design Option in Sculpture • There are a large number of course changes including prerequisite changes which are too numerous to list here - we will be working on updating PeopleSoft up until your preregistration begins DADAA Advising • • • • • The 2010-2011 Catalog does not have updated Art + Design curriculum Use our DADAA website for up to date concentration requirements as of October 7th BFA Screening should begin at the end of this semester.
