A student must successfully complete, at Fontbonne, a minimum of 50 percent of the credit hours required for the major.
The department requires a portfolio of work from incoming freshman art majors (BA or BFA) for assessment purposes. This portfolio will contain a minimum of four samples of work by the student in digital form (as a PowerPoint presentation only; no other digital forms will be accepted).
