BFA students are required to complete a total of 120 credits to graduate. Of these, 76 credits must be in studio coursework. Within this requirement, students have the freedom to choose those courses that will best help them realize their artistic vision and voice. This process is a fluid and organic one, and will shift and change over the course of a student’s undergraduate experience.

To earn a BFA degree at Tufts University, all students must:

  • Earn a minimum of 120 credits.
  • Complete 76 credits of studio coursework and 42 credits of Liberal Arts Distribution requirements.
  • Satisfy the residency requirement of eight full-time semesters, according to the stipulations outlined in The Bulletin.
