University Of California San Diego
Solidly grounded in an interdisciplinary approach, the visual arts at UCSD are deeply rooted in the concepts of research and development. The Visual Arts Department, one of the most highly ranked art programs within a university in the country, offers Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Master of Fine Arts (M.F.A.) across painting, drawing, sculpture, performance, computing in the arts, film, video, photography and criticism; as well as a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in art history and a Ph.D./M.A. degree in art and media history, theory and criticism.
