BHSU Developing Bachelor's of Fine Arts Degrees

Black Hills State University is working to develop bachelor's of fine arts degrees in photography, graphic design and studio art, reports the Black Hills Pioneer. The Spearfish school's existing photography degree is currently offered as a bachelor's of science degree. 

The South Dakota Board of Regents approved development of the degrees, and the Regents will grant final approval once BHSU faculty develop curriculum for the degrees. 

BHSU faculty said that national trends make BFA degrees in these fields more marketable and more respected when students seek to continue studying in graduate school. The new degrees will prepare students for work in fine arts, commercial arts, museum and gallery management and advertising.
