Concentration Portfolio Review

In accordance with National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) accreditation, students within the Art + Art History Department at UTA with the intent of pursuing a B.F.A., B.F.A with Art Certification or a B.A. in Studio Art are required to participate in a Concentration Portfolio Review.

The Concentration Portfolio Review is a method of assessing art students’ artistic progress and their preparedness to enter advanced classes in the B.F.A. or B.A. program. The review will enable acceptance into either the B.F.A. or B.A. program based on the potential to excel in the intended area of study.

All students pursuing studio art are considered "Art Intended" until successful completion of the CPR. Art Intended students are scheduled for CPR according to their degree progress. Reviews occur during the semester that a student has registered for their 21st hour of studio art (either Fall or Spring semester), which is the equivalent of seven classes within the Art Foundation area.

The Art Foundations curriculum is fundamental in forming sound studio practice. Critical thinking is encouraged through the foundation of principles of verbal, written, and visual expression. Students must complete courses before moving to upper level study. Moreover, all foundation level courses are required for CPR submission into the B.F.A. or B.A. program.
