Studio Art Qualifying Exam

The ten-day, junior qualifying exam is normally taken at the end of the junior year and is the final hurdle before the senior thesis. In studio art, students are given a short essay or two and are asked to respond to it in a short paper, and in a series of drawings and a finished work. At the end of this period the student turns in the paper and displays his or her work, and the paper and work are discussed with members of the department.
