The program in Art offers courses in a variety of media that provide a background in visual arts as part of a liberal education and as preparation for graduate study and professional work.
Courses in Art are open to all undergraduate students. In cases where student demand for entry into a course is greater than can be accommodated, priority will be given to School of Art students and declared Art majors. The director of undergraduate studies and members of the Art faculty will be present for counseling on Tuesday, August 28, adjacent to the School of Art Gallery at Holcombe T. Green, Jr., Hall, 1156 Chapel Street, from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Students seeking advice about course selection or the program in Art should come at that time. Others wishing to elect Art courses should go to the first meeting of the class, when each instructor will determine the class enrollment. Classes begin on Wednesday, August 29. For courses beginning in the spring term, counseling will be held on Monday, January 14, 2013, adjacent to the School of Art Gallery, from 12 to 1:30 p.m.; Art classes begin on Tuesday, January 15, 2013. All Art majors are required to register with the director of undergraduate studies at the beginning of each term at the time and place listed above in order to be enrolled or to continue in the major.
The prerequisites for acceptance into the major are a sophomore review, which is an evaluation of work from studio courses taken at the Yale School of Art, and five introductory (100-level) term courses. Four of the introductory courses must have been completed at the time of the sophomore review. Visual Thinking (ART 111) and Basic Drawing (ART 114) are mandatory. At the time of the review, the student should be enrolled in the fifth 100-level prerequisite course. In exceptional cases, arrangements for a special review during the junior year may be made with the director of undergraduate studies.
Requirements of the major The Art major requires fourteen term courses, including the following: (1) five prerequisite courses at the 100 level (including Basic Drawing and Visual Thinking); (2) five courses at the 200 level or above; (3) the Junior Seminar (ART 395) or Critical Theory in the Studio (ART 201); (4) the Senior Project (ART 495); and (5) two term courses in the history of art. Suggested program guidelines and specific requirements for the various areas of concentration are available from the director of undergraduate studies.
Art majors are eligible for the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Fellowship for study at the Yale University Summer School of Music and Art at Norfolk, Connecticut. Applicants for the program must be officially classified as junior Art majors and be returning to Yale for two terms of their senior year. The program awards up to four course credits for work successfully completed. These credits cannot be used toward the requirements of the Art major; however, they may be counted toward the 36-course-credit graduation requirement.
Some Art courses may be repeated for credit, with permission of both the instructor and the director of undergraduate studies. Course credits in studio art earned at other institutions may be applied toward the requirements of the major, at the discretion of the director of undergraduate studies and subject to a faculty review process.
All Art majors are charged a facilities access and user fee of $200 per term. Additional materials fees are levied in individual courses, as specified at the end of the course description.
Unless otherwise indicated, spring-term classes in Art begin on Tuesday, January 15, 2013.
