Writing Portfolio

The School of Art and Design values and supports written communication abilities and critical thinking skills developed through iterative writing experiences across the curriculum and within the discipline.

All BA-Art History & Museum Professions and BFA majors must either take the Writing Requirement course, ARHS 240, or fulfill the Writing Portfolio. The portfolio consists of a minimum of 20 pages total from writing assignments earning a B- or higher completed in any ART or ARHS class ( see PDF checklist for details).

Writing a Self-Reflection

The Self-Relflection should be completed the semester before you graduate. You should look over the writing assignments you've done in your time as an art major in ART and ARHS classes and comment on what you learned and how your writing has improved. This is a chance to consider the role of writing alongside your studio work as you complete your academic experience and move on to graduate studies or your professional life.
