Bachelor of Visual Arts (BVA)
BVA or Bachelor of Visual Arts is a four-year duration undergraduate Fine Arts programme in which students major in any one of the disciplines of their interest. Some of the popular BVA specialisations in which candidates can choose to major are creative writing, painting, film-making, technical arts, applied arts, sculpture, television production, photography, stage management, animation, and film production.
A BVA course can be chosen by any candidate who has a creative instinct and wishes to build his/ her career in the field of art. A course in Visual Arts appeals to the aesthetic sense of students and makes their imaginative senses grow. Also, the course offers students all the theoretical as well as practical knowledge needed to build a successful career in the field. BVA is a four-year duration course typically spread over eight semesters. Subjects taught in the first year (also called the foundation year) of a BVA course are common for all candidates. It is only after the first year that candidates get to choose the BVA specialisation in which they want to major.
In order to fulfill eligibility criteria for BVA, candidates should complete Class 12th in any stream from a recognised board with at least 50% marks. It may be noted that candidates with a background in visual arts are preferable at the time of admissions.
