Temple University Japan's Art Major is offered under the auspices of the Tyler School of Art.  While including courses in painting and drawing, three-dimensional design, and art history, the major's principal focus is on digital media art.  The major helps to cultivate the artistic sense and skills that will help students develop as artists and to work in art-related careers.

 

Bachelor of Arts in Art, Digital Media Concentration (Japan campus only)

The Bachelor of Arts in Art with a Digital Media concentration is a fine-art oriented course of study focusing on the use of the computer as a creative tool. This concentration helps students develop their artistic vision using new technology to focus on personal expression; it is not graphic design. Students in this concentration pursue a variety of projects designed to help them explore the boundaries between technology and studio art processes. Students interested in graphic design should investigate the B.F.A. in Graphic and Interactive Design on the Main campus of Temple University.   

New students are required to complete the General Education (GenEd) curriculum. In addition to the GenEd Global/World Society requirement, B.A. candidates in Art under the GenEd curriculum are required by their department to complete successfully the second semester of a foreign language. Study abroad for a summer or semester will satisfy the Global/World Society requirement.

There will be no requirement to take the GenEd Arts course if all of the following courses are completed with a C- or better: Art 1101, Art 1201, Art 1401 (or 1496 or 1996), and Art 1501. If the student changes majors before completing all four courses, s/he must complete a GenEd Arts course to satisfy the requirement for General Education.

Students must complete at least 15 semester hours in upper-level Liberal Arts courses.

There may be minimum grade requirements of C- or better in required courses - students should refer to the DARS and their advisor.

The Bachelor of Arts degree may be conferred upon a student by recommendation of the faculty and upon the satisfactory completion of a minimum of 123 semester hours of credit with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00.


Students who are seeking admission into the B.A. in Art degree program must review the requirements and procedures outlined on the TUJ web site: www.tuj.ac.jp/admissions/index.html.
