Our department has five degree programs: the BA in studio art, the BA in art history, the BFA (a pre-professional studio art degree), the MFA (a terminal degree for studio artists) and the MA in art history. Each of these programs has developed five SLOs organized around five themes which are shared across programs. The result is a matrix of 25 program-level SLOs, which is downloadable in PDF format on our departmental website at http://www.hawaii.edu/art/forms/assessment/assessment.html.

The Department of Art and Art History assesses one of our five degree programs every year. (The five programs, as previously stated, are the studio art BA, art history BA, BFA, MFA, and MA.) This year, for our first round of assessment, we evaluated the BFA program. The results of that process are reported in our other departmental report, on our undergraduate programs. In the coming year, we plan to evaluate the MFA program, which is the next step in our five-year cycle of assessment.
