B.F.A in Sculpture

Earn a B.F.A. in Sculpture

From the first three-dimensional experience through the fourth year of advanced work, Herron’s Sculpture program encourages consistent growth. The multimedia fabrication and foundry facilities provide a level of sophisticated technical experience that few, if any, other undergraduate programs can match.

Students get exposure to a wide spectrum of techniques and processes, including metal fabrication, casting, woodcarving, construction, resins, plastics, and stone carving, plus the capacity to work with nontraditional materials. Through a team teaching approach, students are assured a broad base of practical information, critical analysis, and creative discourse.

Graduates of the sculpture program have had the opportunity to investigate all three-dimensional media and are prepared to continue independent development.


This program meets the educational requirements as mandated by the National Schools of Art and Design (NASAD).
