Degrees Offered

BA in Art with Digital Media Concentration

The Bachelor of Arts in Art with a Digital Media concentration at the Temple Japan campus 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.

In addition to the major and college requirements, students must complete a set of university requirements: General Education (Gen Ed).

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

The Bachelor of Arts degree for all concentrations 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.

While a portfolio is not required for admission into the BA in Art degree program, if you have completed college-level studio courses and are seeking studio equivalency credit, you must complete a transfer portfolio review. The department will only accept up to 24 transfer credits of studio work toward the major. The transfer portfolio consists of seven to ten images of work for each studio art course you have completed along with a list of the size of the medium and the title of the course.

Minor in Art

Temple University students have the option of exploring the visual arts by choosing to take a minor in Art. The Art Minor is available on both the Main Campus of Temple University and at the Temple University Japan Campus. 

While the studio courses within the minor are generally found listed under the Art department, Main Campus students may also take courses open to all Temple students from the Graphic Arts and Design, Crafts, and Painting/Drawing/Sculpture departments to help fulfill elective credits.
