Mission Statement
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The College of Visual and Performing Arts of The University of Toledo provides students with a learning environment that fosters creative scholarship and exploration.  We embrace both innovation and the traditions of our disciplines.  Through collaborative learning and artistic practice we prepare new artists, scholars and arts educators who will lead, challenge, and inspire.

Admission Policies
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

New first-year students must (1) submit a college test score (ACT or SAT) and (2) have either a 2.5 high school GPA or ACT composite or 20 (SAT combined reading and math score of 950) to be admitted to the College of Arts and Sciences.  Applicants not meeting these standards will be admitted to the University of Toledo Learning Collaborative Gateway Program. 

To be considered for admission to the premed, predent and prevet programs, students will need a minimum high school cumulative GPA of 3.2 and an ACT composite score of 25 (or minimum SAT combined reading and math score of 1150).  Students should also have successfully completed a minimum of three years of high school mathematics (algebra I, algebra II and geometry) and high school chemistry.  Applicants not meeting these standards but meeting the Visual and Performing Arts college admission standards will be admitted to the College of Visual and Performing Arts as BA (undecided) majors.

Change of College

Students in good standing (i.e., with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher) who wish to change from another college of The University of Toledo to the College of Visual and Performing Arts should make an appointment with a college Adviser in the College Student Services Office to discuss their transfer and have their academic records reviewed.  External transfer course work previously evaluated by other UT colleges will be re-evaluated.  All college requirements, including core, distributive, major and related requirements, must be fulfilled as specified in the catalog for the year in which the student enters the College of Visual and Performing Arts.  Credit restrictions and level requirements for Visual and Performing Arts students will apply.  Continuing UT students seeking admission to pre-medical, pre-dental and pre-veterinary programs must have a 3.0 cumulative college GPA and have completed CHEM 1090 or 1230 and MATH 1320 or higher with a B or better. 

Admission with Transfer Credit from Another Institution 
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

No more than 94 semester hours of credit earned at other institutions may apply toward a degree in the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Course work from other institutions is accepted at the level at which the course was taught at that institution. Courses transferred from community, junior or technical colleges offering Associate degrees will not count toward the requirement of 32 credits at the 3000-4000 levels.  Students with transfer credit are generally expected to fulfill all University and college course requirements for a degree in the College of Visual and Performing Arts as specified in the catalog for the year in which they enter the College of Visual and Performing Arts.  In some cases, not all the credits that transfer into The University of Toledo will apply toward a degree in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, e.g., developmental courses and excess credits in the major and in technical subjects.  Transfers from other institutions shall take at least 30 semester hours at The University of Toledo, including 12 semester hours of work in their major field and 9 semester hours in their minor field, regardless of the number of hours transferred. 

 

Students transferring to the University of Toledo in Spring 2007 or later, including transfer readmits, must meet minimum GPA requirements in their Visual and Performing Arts majors and minors with both (1) the grades of all courses attempted at UT and (2) in a second calculation, the grades of all courses attempted at all institutions (including UT).  The grades of all courses (from all institutions) which are used by those students to satisfy UT Core requirements must be used in the calculation of the UT Core GPA. 

 

UT students who attend other institutions as guests or transient students in Fall 2008 or later must also meet minimum GPA requirements in their Visual and Performing Arts majors and minors with (1) the grades of all courses attempted at UT and (2) in a second calculation, the grades of all courses attempted at all institutions (including UT).  The grades of all courses (from all institutions) which are used by those students to satisfy UT Core requirements must be used in the calculation of the UT Core GPA. 

 

For the purposes of meeting minimum cumulative GPAs in a student's VPA major(s) and/or minor(s) and the UT Core, the grades of all courses attempted at all institutions will be included in the GPA calculation(s).  Note:  Due to technological limitations of UT's current Degree Audit Reporting System, Degree Audit GPA calculations for students who have taken courses at other institutions may not be accurate.  Consult a college staff Adviser if you have questions. 

 

Transfer students should note that The University of Toledo will include all course work taken at all institutions of higher education in the calculation to determine if a student will graduate with honors.  All college course work ever taken is computed in determining eligibility for graduation with honors, although no student will be awarded a level of honors above that indicated by The University of Toledo cumulative grade point average (GPA).  Note:  The University of Toledo requires a minimum of 30 semester hours of standard letter graded courses from UT in order to qualify for graduation with honors. 

 

An applicant who has undertaken courses at a regionally accredited college or university and who submits through the Office of Undergraduate Admission for Adult, Transfer and International Students an official transcript listing courses and grades and giving evidence of good standing will be admitted to the College of Visual and Performing Arts, provided the student has maintained a minimum GPA of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale. 

 

Exceptions to this minimum admission requirement are rarely made and require the applicant to demonstrate, in a written petition to the committee on academic standing, that there are special circumstances that warrant waiver of the requirement. Approval of the petition is not automatic, and those students who are admitted by petition will be placed on special probationary status and must meet certain conditions to remain enrolled. 

 

If the college from which the applicant transfers lacks proper accreditation, the student may be denied transfer credit on the basis of the transcript, but may be allowed to obtain credit by passing advanced standing examinations with at least a C grade.  Official transcripts of records from all schools previously attended must be on file with the Office of Undergraduate Admission for Adult, Transfer and International Students before the student will be permitted to register.


A Second Degree at The University of Toledo 

A student earning a first degree at The University of Toledo may earn a second bachelor’s degree in the College of Visual and Performing Arts by taking a minimum of 20 additional semester hours and satisfying all requirements for both degrees.  The student must take the additional 20 hours in College of Visual and Performing Arts course work, unless the student’s major department requires course work outside the college to satisfy major or related requirements.  An undergraduate with a degree from another institution is considered a transfer student.  Such a student is then considered a candidate for a second degree.  See requirements for admission with transfer credit from another institution.

 

Requirements for Students with an Associate’s Degree  

Students holding an associate of arts or associate of science degree from an accredited college are encouraged to enroll in the College of Visual and Performing Arts and, in many instances, may expect to earn an appropriate baccalaureate upon completion of two years of full-time study.  Students with an associate’s degree in a technical program will likely require more time to complete a bachelor’s degree. The following regulations apply:

 

Readmission of Former Arts and Sciences Students 

Students who have withdrawn from the former College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Visual and Performing Arts and The University of Toledo and have not attended any other institution in the interim may be readmitted, provided they were eligible to continue enrollment in the college at the time they discontinued attendance.  Such students should readmit at the College Student Services Office.  Students who have been suspended from the former College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Visual and Performing Arts must submit a written letter of petition.  Students who readmit after more than 12 consecutive months’ absence must comply with existing college requirements at the time of readmission.

 

Academic Policies 

Refer to UT Policy website for academic policies that apply to all students.

 

Academic Advising 

Academic advising is a process intended to help students derive as many benefits as possible from their educations.  This occurs when Advisers help students develop and reach academic and career goals.  While the ultimate responsibility for making personal and educational decisions rests with the student, Advisers assist by helping to identify and assess alternatives and the consequences of decisions.  Advising can be much more than selecting courses.  The more frequently students arrange to meet with their Advisers, the better their needs can be served.  New students, transfer students, students changing colleges, and continuing general studies students are advised in the College of Visual and Performing Arts Student Services Office, University Hall, Room 3000, by college staff Advisers. They provide essential information; help students select courses to meet University core and college distributive requirements; suggest courses for the exploration of majors and minors; and help students evaluate academic progress and adjustment to university life.  Students with declared majors and/or minors are advised by departmental major or program Advisers, faculty who provide general information as well as more specialized information about majors and minor programs, departmental course offerings, and career and graduate opportunities.  They help students select courses for general, major, related, and other requirements.  Students in the Honors Program and those seeking more than one major or degree, a minor, or admission to professional school should meet periodically with one or more additional Advisers.  A complete list of academic Advisers is available on the college Web site or in the College office.

 

Student Responsibilities
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 

Students are responsible for correctly selecting courses for their programs of study each semester and for fulfilling all degree requirements. Although Advisers will assist wherever possible, the final responsibility rests with the student. Students are expected to make sure that they are fulfilling all degree requirements, as published in the issue of the catalog of the former College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Visual and Performing Arts under which they entered. Students who have been out of the former College of Arts and Sciences or the College of Visual and Performing Arts for 12 consecutive months are responsible for the requirements in the University catalog under which they reenter.

 

Transcripts and Degree Audit Reports

A transcript is a complete chronological list of a student’s academic course work (including all courses attempted and grades earned).  It does not show how specific courses apply or do not apply to University and college requirements as stipulated in this catalog.  For example, developmental, excess technical, non-repeatable and certain other courses are not counted toward minimum credits for degrees, but appear on transcripts.  The Degree Audit Report (DAR) details all requirements applicable to a student’s academic program (degree, major, minor) and applies the student’s courses on the transcript (including transfer credit) to those requirements. The DAR should be used to identify requirements remaining when all registered courses are completed.  The College of Visual and Performing Arts Student Services Office (UH Room 3000) will provide an unofficial transcript and DAR to a College of Visual and Performing Arts student presenting a picture ID.  Students also may view their transcript and DAR through the myUT portal with Student Self-Service.

 

Declaring or Changing a Major or Minor

To declare a major or minor or change one previously declared, students must fill out a form that is available in the College Student Services Office.

 

Sequence of Courses 

There is no single prescribed sequence of courses, except that all first-year students should take ARS 1000 Orientation, College Composition I and II, and any developmental courses required on the basis of placement testing and/or high school deficiencies.  Students should consult the later sections of the catalog devoted to programs of study and course offerings, and they should review their programs with their academic Advisers to ensure they complete courses in the proper sequences.  In addition, students should use their Degree Audit Reports to track their progress. 

 

Students majoring in the areas of humanities and social sciences are expected to defer most of their major work until the junior and senior years, except for courses prerequisite to the 3000 level and 4000 level courses in their fields. Outside the major, during the first two years, they should be sure to take those courses in the general requirements that are prerequisite to courses they wish to take as juniors and seniors. 

 


Study Abroad 
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 

Students who plan to study abroad must be sure that their proposed course of study is properly accredited.  Its academic acceptability should be verified by the college before departure. Students also should ascertain in advance from their Advisers whether the course work will count toward their general requirements, majors, or related areas or only be regarded as elective.  Credit for foreign language study is subject to the approval and recommendation of the department of foreign languages.  Information about study abroad programs is generally available from Advisers in many college programs and departments and from the Office of Study Abroad.

 

Transient (Guest) Enrollment at Another Institution

Visual and Performing Arts students must have advance permission both to enroll elsewhere as a guest and to take specific courses.  The Transient Student form for this purpose is available in the College Student Services Office and on the college Web site.  Students enrolling without permission will be considered transfer readmits upon their return to UT.  VPA students enrolled as transients or guests at another institution must submit an official transcript to the UT Office of Admission at the conclusion of the enrolled term.  Grades of all courses attempted in the major, minor, and UT Core will be used in cumulative GPA calculations.

 

GPA Recalculation for Repeated Courses 

The College of Visual and Performing Arts permits a maximum of 12 semester hours or the equivalent of 18 quarter hours of course work to be deleted from the GPA calculation.  Students who have had their GPAs recomputed under the Academic Forgiveness Policy are not eligible for grade deletions.  Criteria governing GPA recalculation are given in the General Section of this catalog.  Students should check with the College Student Services Office for more specific information on this policy.  Students may not use repeat courses taken at other institutions to qualify for a GPA recalculation.

 

Withdrawal Policy (W, IW, DR Grades) 

The number of credit hours of W, IW and DR is limited to 22 hours for all undergraduate students in degree programs in the College of Visual and Performing Arts. Once a student has accumulated 22 hours of W, IW or DR, further withdrawals will be counted as F’s in computation of the student’s GPA for purposes of probation or suspension.  In addition, students who receive financial aid risk the loss of financial aid if they accumulate excessive hours of W, IW and DR.  Students who transfer into the College of Visual and Performing Arts from another college at The University of Toledo will bring with them the number of W’s, IW’s and DR’s accumulated in their previous work.  Note:  Assignment of the IW and DR grades has been discontinued.  A student wanting to be withdrawn from a course must file a petition in the Records Office by the deadline in the term of enrollment.


Academic Probation 

A student whose cumulative GPA is less than 2.0 is automatically placed on probation until a 2.0 cumulative GPA is achieved (see Withdrawal Policy above).  It is recommended that a student on probation not enroll for more than 12 to 14 credits.

 

Academic Suspension
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________  

Academic suspension means that a student is prohibited from registering at The University of Toledo for a period of at least one semester.  Students are subject to academic suspension if their GPA falls below the minimum GPA listed below or if they fail to make sufficient progress toward attainment of the degree.  (See Withdrawal Policy.)  Students may remove Incompletes while under suspension.  A student is subject to academic suspension if the cumulative GPA is less than:  1.0 for 10 to 19 hours attempted; 1.5 for 20 to 29 hours attempted; 1.7 for 30 to 39 hours attempted; 1.8 for 40 to 49 hours attempted; 1.9 for 50 to 59 hours attempted; and 2.0 for 60 or more hours attempted.  After accumulating 60 credit hours without suspension, a student may be suspended if the cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 for two consecutive semesters.

 

Trial Readmission Policy 

After the required suspension period, a student may petition for readmission to the College of Visual and Performing Arts Director of Student Services.  The petition must be received at least one month before the beginning of the semester in which the student wishes to readmit.  If the petition is accepted, the college committee will determine the terms of the conditional registration agreement, under which the student will be permitted to re-enroll.  Suspended students who are granted readmission must maintain the designated GPA for each semester thereafter and meet the conditions of their readmission agreement.  Students failing to meet these conditions are subject to a one-year suspension.

 

Dismissal Policy

Students who fail to meet the conditions for readmission after their second suspension are subject to dismissal and are not eligible for readmission to the College of Visual and Performing Arts for at least three years. Refer to the General Section of this catalog for information on the Academic Forgiveness Policy.

 

Academic Grievance 
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________  

A student has the responsibility and right to call to the attention of an instructor any grade that the student believes to be in error or unfair.  A student may appeal the decision of the instructor, in order, to the department Chair, the Dean, then to the college appeals committee if the problem is not resolved.  If the problem is not resolved at the college level, the student may appeal to the student grievance council.  (See also The University of Toledo Student Handbook.)  A student must begin the appeals process no later than the end of the semester following the one in which the grievance arose.

 

Statement on Academic Dishonesty 

A student found to be academically dishonest by a faculty member may appeal, in order, to the department Chair, the Dean, the college appeals committee and the University student grievance council.  The procedures for making an appeal to the student grievance council may be found in The University of Toledo Student Handbook.  Refer to the General Section of this catalog for the policy statement on academic dishonesty.


College Level Examination Program (CLEP)

Pass/No Credit Option

Refer to the General Section of this catalog for an explanation of the pass/no credit grading option.  Refer to programs of study in the College of Visual and Performing Arts section of this catalog for the limitations on pass/no credit grading in effect for different majors.  Undecided students, as a general rule, should not elect pass/no credit grading in major-level courses.

 

Graduation Evaluation Requirement

Two or three semesters before a student intends to graduate, the student and the student’s major Adviser must complete a Graduation Progress Evaluation. This process is initiated by the student.  Students with more than one major or one or more minors must be evaluated for the completion of each major and minor.  Detailed instructions on the Graduation Progress Evaluation and graduation procedures are available at the college office.

 

Field Experience/Internship

Policies and procedures for incorporating field experiences or internships in academic programs vary from major to major. Some majors require a field experience or internship; for other majors, they are optional. Students should seek information from their major departments and obtain advance approval for all field experiences or internships.

 

Degree Requirements
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 

 

A. Grade Point Averages

A cumulative grade point average (GPA) reflects all grades earned, including grades of F and grades in repeated courses.  Candidates must earn a minimum overall cumulative GPA of C (that is, a 2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale) for all UT course work.  In addition, candidates must earn a minimum cumulative GPA of C in the major, with the grades of all courses attempted at all institutions included in the GPA calculation.  Some programs require a higher GPA in the major.  Refer to the General Section of this catalog for information on grade deletions and academic forgiveness.

 

B. Residency Requirement

Students transferring from other institutions must earn at least 30 hours of credit at The University of Toledo; at least 12 of these must be in the major area, and for students pursuing a minor, at least 9 hours must be earned at The University of Toledo.  Full-time students must take their last semester, and part-time students their last 12 hours, in residence, unless alternative arrangements have been made in advance with the Dean of the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

 

C. Credit Hours and Levels

1.  Students must complete a minimum of 124 hours of course work that must include the University and college core and distributive requirements, and either an area of concentration (major) and course work related to the major, or an interdisciplinary program.

2.  In all baccalaureate programs, a minimum of 64 hours must be taken at the 2000 to 4000 levels; of these, a minimum of 32 hours must be taken at the 3000 to 4000 levels.  (Courses transferred from community, junior or technical colleges offering associate degrees will not count toward the 3000-4000 level requirement.)

3.  Students are cautioned to make use of their degree audit and review remaining requirements with their Adviser before every registration in order to make progress toward completion of their requirements in an orderly, timely manner.

4.  Insofar as a student can complete the basic courses and the courses required for a chosen major (as outlined in sections E - K below) in fewer than the 124 hours required for a degree, the student must choose elective courses to complete the total of 124 hours, subject to the restrictions outlined below.

 

D. Credit Restrictions

Total earned hours shown on a student’s transcript may not all be applicable to the minimum 124 credits required for a degree, as follows:

1.  Students with entrance deficiencies in mathematics and other students who are required or choose to take developmental course work will need to complete additional hours.

2.  No more than four hours of credit in performing ensembles (MUS 2010/3010 - 2190/3190) will apply toward the degree.

3.  No courses in typing, shorthand or keyboarding will apply toward the degree.

4.  No more than two hours in skill courses in physical education or recreation courses at the 1000 level will apply toward the degree.

5.  No more than two hours in Student Leadership Development I and II will apply toward the degree.

6.  Duplicate credit – except for courses identified as repeatable courses, students will not receive credit for repeated courses (taking the same course twice), whether taken at The University of Toledo or elsewhere.

7.  The college reserves the right to deny credit for other specific courses (including most SKLS courses) and for blanket technical credit not applicable to a student’s specific program.

 

E. University Core Curriculum Requirements

Students earning baccalaureates in all colleges and programs are required to complete between 27 and 30 credit hours of courses that comprise the University Core Curriculum. Those courses are distributed in the areas of English composition, humanities/fine arts, social sciences, natural sciences and mathematics, and multicultural studies (see the General Section of this catalog for details). Some colleges and programs require courses in these areas above those required to fulfill University Core requirements. Students should contact their academic department or college office for specific details.

 

F. Orientation (ARS 1000) - 1 hour 

All new first-year students are required to take ARS 1000. The course is optional for transfer students.

 

G. Visual and Performing Arts Skill Areas Requirements

Students are placed into English composition and mathematics courses by ACT scores or placement tests in those subjects. Students are placed into foreign language courses through placement testing.


1.  English Composition (University of Toledo core and College of Visual and Performing Arts requirement) – 6 hours. Students must pass Composition I (or Composition I with Workshop, see below) and Composition II with a grade of C or better.

a.      Native speakers track (for students for whom English is a first language).   
ENGL 1100 – 5 hours
  Composition I with Workshop (Developmental course; three hours will count toward degree if student earns a grade of C or higher; any student who earns a grade of C or higher will go directly to Composition II; any student who does not pass will go to Composition I.)   
ENGL 1110 – 3 hours
  College Composition I  
ENGL 1130 (or 1140 or 1150) – 3 hours
   College Composition II 

b.      Nonnative speakers track (for students for whom English is a second language) Students will take an English placement test to determine appropriate level.   
ENGL 1020 – 3 hours    
Writing and Grammar for English as a Second Language  
ENGL 1110 – 3 hours    Composition I  
ENGL 1130 (or 1140 or 1150) – 3 hours   Composition II

2.  Mathematics 1180 (UT core and College of Visual and Performing Arts requirement) – 3 hours (may replace with any mathematics course greater than MATH 1180, except MATH 2280).

3.  Foreign Languages (College of Visual and Performing Arts requirement) – 0 to 14 hours (foreign languages 1110, 1120, 1500, 2140, 2150). Every student is required to demonstrate proficiency in a single foreign language (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin or Spanish) through the intermediate (foreign languages 2150) level by successfully completing a foreign language course at this level or by achieving an appropriate score on a proficiency/placement test administered by the department of foreign languages that reflects the equivalent.  


Students beginning a foreign language should enroll in their chosen language at the elementary 1110 level and will take four semesters of foreign language. Those continuing a foreign language or attempting to demonstrate competency by examination should take a proficiency/placement test.  Students with two or more years of French, German or Spanish in high school who place below an intermediate course may enroll in an intensive review course (foreign languages 1500) that covers the material in the first two semesters (foreign languages 1110 and 1120), and then complete the second-year courses (foreign languages 2140 and 2150).

 

H.  Visual and Performing Arts Distributive Requirements

Students should consult with their Advisers in selecting courses that will meet distributive requirements.  With their Adviser’s approval, students may select higher-level courses for which they have the prerequisites.  With careful planning, students will be able to satisfy UT Core Curriculum and College of Visual and Performing Arts requirements by taking the minimum required hours.  A student may take no more than two courses (or two courses and one lab for natural sciences) under each departmental code in satisfying the general education distributive requirements.

 

1.  Humanities and Fine Arts (UT Core requirement is two courses for six hours; College of Visual and Performing Arts requires 6 hours, depending on student’s major).  Students will be required to complete one history course and one literature course.  Students may select humanities courses that also will satisfy a UT Core humanities or multicultural requirement.   
Required Courses (for all majors) – 6 hours
English Literature – 3 hours  
History – 3 hours

2. Natural Sciences (UT Core requirement is two courses for 6 hours; College of Visual and Performing Arts requirement is three courses for a minimum of 9 hours and must include one laboratory course). 


Students will take a minimum of 9 hours of courses in natural sciences and mathematics, in addition to the course taken to meet the mathematics requirement. (Because of The University of Toledo core curriculum requirements, students must take two courses from two different departments other than mathematics.)  


Students may select courses from astronomy, biology, chemistry, geology, mathematics and physics. Suggested courses with minimal or no prerequisites are as follows:  ASTR 1010, 2010, 2020 and 2050; BIOL 1120, 1140, 1150, 1340, 2010 and 2020; CHEM 1100 and 1150; EEES 1010, 1020, 1030, 1050, 1130, 1140, 1150, 1160 and 1170; BUAD 1020; and PHYS 1050, 1300, 1310, 1320, 1330 and 1750.  However, higher-level natural sciences courses will satisfy this requirement and may be taken if the student has met the prerequisites.

 
3. Social Sciences (UT Core requirement is two courses for six hours; Visual and Performing Arts requirement is three courses for nine hours). 

Students will take nine hours of courses in social sciences.


Students may select social science courses that also will meet a UT core social science requirement and one multicultural requirement.  Students may select courses from anthropology, economics, geography, political science, psychology, and sociology.  Suggested courses with minimal or no prerequisites are as follows: ANTH 1020, 2020, 2800, and 2900; ECON 1010, 1150 and 1200; GEPL 1010 and 1100; PSC 1200, 1300, 1400 and 1710; PSY 1010; and SOC 1010 and SOC 1750.

I. Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) Requirement

1.            To earn a degree in the College of Visual and Performing Arts, students must pass both Composition I and II with a C or better.  (Students jointly enrolled in the Honors College will pass HON 1010 and 1020 with a C or better to meet the Composition I and II requirements.)  The College of Visual and Performing Arts recommends that these requirements be met before completing 45 credit hours.

2.            Students must pass two writing intensive courses approved by their adviser.  Many courses will require completion of Composition I and II (or HON 1010 and HON 1020) as pre-requisites.  The College of Visual and Performing Arts recommends that the first of these writing intensive courses be completed within the first 65 hours and the second within the first 90 hours.  One of these courses must be taken within the student’s major.  In consultation with their advisers, students with dual or interdisciplinary majors will meet this requirement by selecting a course within one of their chosen majors.

3.            Advisers will monitor students’ progress to help them complete these requirements in a timely fashion.

4.            Whenever possible, departments should incorporate a significant writing component in upper-division courses.

5.            Transfer students from institutions that have required writing intensive courses should have their former institution certify that they have completed a series of writing intensive courses comparable to those required in the College of Visual and Performing Arts.  Transfer students who have not taken writing intensive courses must meet the College of Visual and Performing Arts Writing Across the Curriculum requirements.

 

J. Major Area

Every student must complete either a departmental major or interdisciplinary major. Courses given in other colleges of the University may be credited to the major only with the approval of the Dean of the College of Visual and Performing Arts upon recommendation of the department Chair.  Waiver of a required course or the substitution of a course from another department does not necessarily reduce the minimum credits required in the major.

 

1. Departmental Major

See the complete list of departmental majors under “Degrees Offered” in the College of Visual and Performing Arts section of this catalog.  


The minimum number of semester hours a student must complete for a departmental major is prescribed by the department, but rarely exceeds 34 hours.  The maximum number of hours a student may elect for the major within the total 124 hours for a Bachelor of Arts degree is 50 hours. For a bachelor of music degree, see the listing under the department of music.  For the bachelor of fine arts degree, see the department of art.  

 

 A student may have two majors from two different departments provided the requirements of both programs are satisfied.  Work in the second major may be accepted as fulfilling the related course requirement upon the approval of the Advisers in both departments.  A student cannot use courses from the first major to satisfy the second and vice-versa.  See section on “Earning a Second Degree” for statement on requirements when two or more desired major programs are offered as different degrees. 


2.  Interdisciplinary Majors A student completing a departmental major and a second major in an interdisciplinary major cannot use courses from the first major to satisfy the second or vice-versa.  See the complete list of interdisciplinary majors under “Degrees Offered” in the College of Visual and Performing Arts section of this catalog.

 

K. Related Courses

Every student who chooses a departmental major also must complete a minimum of 18 hours in courses related to the major. These 18 hours must be in addition to courses taken to fulfill the basic requirements listed above.  Each department defines the areas from which courses may be chosen by its majors, and these listings are reflected in the student’s online Degree Audit.  Related courses must be chosen from courses acceptable for credit in a University of Toledo major.  Generally, these are upper-level courses. 


L. Minors

Many College of Visual and Performing Arts departments offer minors.  Departmental requirements for particular minors are given in later sections of the catalog under Programs of Study.  Students wishing to pursue minors should consult with their primary program Advisers and then with an Adviser in the Visual and Performing Arts college office.  Not all minors can be added to all degree programs.  Courses selected for the minor must be chosen from courses acceptable for credit toward a major in that department.  In meeting requirements for some majors, work in the minor may be accepted as fulfilling the 18 hours of related courses, but only with the approval of the student’s major Adviser.  Students completing a minor cannot use courses from their minor to satisfy requirements in the major.  No more than six hours of courses taken for minor credit may be applied to the total College of Visual and Performing Arts distributive requirements.  A minimum GPA of 2.0 is required in the minor.  Students must complete a minimum of 21 hours for a minor; at least nine of those hours must be completed at The University of Toledo. 


Premedical, Predental and Preveterinary Program
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 

Sharon L. Schnarre, Adviser
Students interested in professional medical, dental or veterinary careers may choose to apply for the premedical, predental and preveterinary programs. Students choosing this option must also complete the requirements for a major in a specific discipline or in an interdisciplinary baccalaureate program.    

Because admission to a professional school is very competitive, students need to maintain high GPAs, both cumulative and in the sciences.  The premedical/predental Adviser will continually monitor a student’s academic performance and make recommendations as to whether this program should be continued. If at any time a student’s GPA drops below a 3.0, the student will be dropped from the program, unless extenuating circumstances exist, in which case the student will be placed on a probationary status until the grades improve. 

 

The premedical/predental Adviser will assist the student in determining the entrance requirements of the professional school being considered, since these requirements vary among schools.  In general, these professional schools specify for entrance a core set of science courses that include one year (two semesters) each of biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics and mathematics. Most schools recommend that candidates plan a broad course of study leading to either a B.A. or a B.S. degree in any discipline.

 

Honors
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________  

Honors in the College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA), which is available to its academically talented and highly motivated students, is offered in conjunction with the University of Toledo Honors College.  A departmental Honors curriculum is also offered by individual departments within the College of Visual and Performing Arts.

Student Selection and Admission Criteria

Admission to the Honors College is competitive and limited to academically talented students.  Students entering directly from high school are admitted based on a review of application materials, which include a high school transcript, references, an essay, an extracurricular resume, and ACT or SAT scores. Students with an ACT composite score of 28 or higher (SAT composite of 1260 or higher) and a high school GPA of 3.75 or higher are encouraged to apply.  Highly motivated students with an ACT composite of at least 25 (SAT composite of at least 1140) and a minimum high school GPA of 3.5 also are considered for admission to the program.  Currently enrolled University of Toledo students and transfer students may apply for admission to the Honors College if they have completed at least 15 but not more than 60 graded semester hours of college work, and earned a minimum GPA of 3.3 (on a 4.0 scale). 

Students are admitted to the Honors College on a space-available basis.

Program Requirements
__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________  

In order to graduate with the Honors College diploma, a student must:

•            Complete a minimum of 33 semester hours of honors courses. Honors courses are of two kinds – those offered by the Honors College and those offered by various departments and colleges.  Of the 33 hours required, the following must be completed by all Honors College students:

a.      Six semester hours of Honors Readings Conference (HON 1010 and HON 1020).

b.      A minimum of three semester hours selected from HON 2020 (Multicultural Literatures: The North American Experience) or HON 2030 (Multicultural Literatures: The Non-European World).

c.      A minimum of six semester hours of two upper-division interdisciplinary seminars offered through the Honors program (HON 4950 and/or 4960).

d.      All of the requirements for departmental honors in their major. This includes the completion of an honors thesis or project supervised by a faculty member in the major department.  

•            Earn a minimum overall GPA of 3.3.

Note: For a student pursuing more than one major, or an interdepartmental major, the Honors College’s departmental honors requirement may be fulfilled through meeting requirements for one of the majors.

Retention Standards

To remain in good standing in the Honors College, a student must:

Departmental Honors

Requirements for departmental honors designations are set by the various departments of the College of Visual and Performing Arts and are described under the departmental entries in this catalog.  All departments, however, require successful completion of an honors thesis or project supervised by a faculty member in that department.  It is possible for a student to fulfill all departmental requirements and earn the departmental honors citation upon graduation without participating in the Honors College. The reverse is not possible, however, as departmental honors is required to earn the Honors College diploma.

            The Bachelor of Fine Arts program, which may be entered through successful application to the entire studio art faculty, provides the student, who is preparing for professional commitment to the field of studio art, with a more intensive educational experience.  In distinction from the B.A. program, the B.F.A. curriculum provides the student with a more in-depth experience in the major area of studio concentration, and studio electives.

Students entering the B.F.A. program may choose from the following 3 areas of studio concentration – 2D studies (drawing, printmaking, painting), 3D studies (sculpture, ceramics), new media studies (photography, digital arts).

            Students who are interested in admission to the B.F.A. program (and who have fulfilled the requirements indicated below) must apply to the Chair of the B.F.A. Committee. The student should obtain the appropriate application materials from the Chair of the B.F.A. Committee or from the departmental office.  Before applying, the student must consult with their adviser about the application process, and subsequently the application form must be signed by the adviser. The student must also meet with the Chair of the B.F.A. committee at least 5 calendar days before the application due date to discuss their draft application materials.

            Before applying to the B.F.A. program, a student must have completed or be in the process of completing 30 semester hours of undergraduate study, which must include 15 hours of Foundational Art Studies in studio art – 6 hours of drawing (ART 1080, 1090); 6 hours of design (ART 1050, ART 1060); 3 hours of digital media (ART 1070) – and at least 15 hours of general education requirements and art history (ARTH 2050 or ARTH 2060 and not ARTH 1500).  At the time of application, the student must have maintained at least a 3.0 GPA in all courses in studio art and art history.  Applications are reviewed every Fall and Spring semester.  If the application is denied, the student may reapply the following semester, but only one reapplication is permitted.

            In order to insure that students have an adequate period of study as a B.F.A. candidate, each student must spend at least 4 semesters within the B.F.A program enrolled in studio art courses (usually with 18 credit hours remaining in the major) and must pass a minimum of 4 B.F.A. candidate reviews:  the initial review, 2 semester progress reviews, and the B.F.A Thesis Exhibition review (note: the prerequisites for this capstone course and review are 115 credit hours overall; ART 2400; ART 4850; 21 credit hours in Advanced Art Studies).  B.F.A. students must present work for review and attend every B.F.A. review while he or she is in the program.  Failure to pass the capstone review, or failure to pass 2 consecutive progress reviews, will eliminate the student from the program.  Once eliminated from the program, the student may continue studies in the B.A. in Visual Art degree program but may not reapply to the B.F.A program.

            The curriculum leading to the B.F.A. in studio art requires a minimum of 63 hours of courses in the major, which must include the following:
