Program description for catalog:
The Studio Art majors acquire hands-on experiences in several media, including concentrations in computer graphics, drawing, painting, printmaking, ceramics, jewelry, sculpture, fibers and crafts. These courses are balanced with academic courses in art, art history, business and general liberal arts courses. Students have opportunities and are encouraged to display their art on and off campus. Potential occupations range from being a freelance artist to working for a design firm. Large and small companies and government agencies have artist designers on their staffs. The growing field of video uses artists and there are many careers in medical, scientific and other types of technical illustration. By choosing courses in computers, business, or the sciences, students can further multiply their career options. A 2.0 or above must be earned by Art Majors in ART 2240 and ART 2244 foundation courses before admittance to any other studio course. This rule does not apply to non-art majors.

Impact on other programs (if any):
Business Department
The addition of Business courses within the Studio Art curriculum is an idea that is long overdue. Once again the demand placed on the Business Department will average 1-5 additional students in either BUS 1130 (Introduction to Business Management), BUS 2260 (Small Business Management), or BUS 3330 (Marketing) as Related Professional Course options should result in little to no impact on the Business Department. The Business Department supports our endeavors and validates our attempt to better prepare our students.

#2 Action: Course Change Request: ART 4403 Art Seminar

Purpose and nature of change: Change credit hours of Art Seminar to reflect the new Electronic Portfolio requirement and change course description.
Old Credit hours 1 undergraduate
New Credit hours 2 undergraduate
New Course Description: Art Seminar provides students with the opportunity to further exchange idesas, enhance critical dialetic, and to participate in activities relevant to professoonal artis and ar educators.In addition, students enrolled in Art Seminar will compile, focus, reflect, and organize their educational experience at Mansfield University into an electronic vita and professional portfolio. This course will further prepare art education and art studio majors for either graduate school or professional employment.
