Portfolio Review Tips, Guidelines and Requirements
for all UMA B.A. Studio Concentration Areas

A committee of fulltime and adjunct faculty from all studio areas - ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, and sculpture- will come together and review portfolios of student work. The committee will determine if the student has a body of work that displays the craft, composition, and conceptual foundation needed to succeed in the advanced studio courses. All BA Studio candidates are required to pass portfolio review before declaring a concentration and taking any 300 ART/PHO level classes, except Art 315. Reviews typically take place at the end of the Fall and Spring semester.

Work should be submitted immediately after a student had completed the 100-200 level art core: ARH 105/106, ART 112, 113, 115, and 215. A student may apply if their core will be completed at the end of that semester (Ex: If you are enrolled in Drawing II and ARH106 in the Spring, you may submit for the Spring review). Your portfolio will not be reviewed if you have not completed or are currently enrolled in these courses. Transfer students with the equivalent of these courses should submit after their first semester at UMA.

All students are strongly encouraged to meet with both an advisor and an additional art faculty member to discuss their work and edit their portfolio before the review. Selecting quality work is a very important part of the process. Remember that many students will want to meet with faculty, so plan ahead and utilize office hours effectively.

 

*Note to transfer/returning students. At least 3 works must be completed within the last 3 years.

All portfolios must be submitted in a suitable container that can be easily packed and unpacked. Discs should be labeled and in a jewel case. Portfolios must be clearly labeled with student's name, address and telephone number. Portfolios must be delivered to the Arts and Humanities office, Jewett Hall Room 152, according to the posted dates and picked up within one week of the review.

All students who submit work for review will receive a letter from either the coordinator of the art department or the coordinator of the photography concentration. The letter will contain an overview of the portfolio assessment. If the portfolio is passed, the student may declare an area concentration. If the portfolio did not pass, areas that need improvement will be addressed in the letter. Students that do not pass should meet with a faculty representative who teaches in an area of suggested improvement. Together they can develop a strategy for improvement. Students may submit work for review up to three times

Students are encouraged to contact their faculty advisor and the Advising Centerfor academic advising and support services throughout their stay at UMA.
