BFA in Art (Intermedia) or Art (Photography), BS in Graphic Information Technology or BA in Journalism & Mass Communication....... I get to chose from these four! I'm not sure.... Someone break these down and help me figure it out! I have to declare my program! =) I'm having a difficult time trying to pick which one would be best and suit my needs! Is one better than the other?


Here's a link to read the degree break downs:

I like the BA in MassComm journalism because my first love was photojournalism. The issue is, I wouldn't have a lot of classes transfer, so I might end up taking more classes and taking longer than two years to finish... =/


I like the BFA in Photography because it has more photography courses and I LOVE photography. As long as I run my own business I would be great with that one. Issue is, if I go back into the corp working field for whatever reason, like God forbid something happened to to my husband, I don't want people to see that degree and laugh. =/ Will they hire someone with a Bach of fine arts?


I like the BS in Graphic design because it's a Bach of science, and ALL of the program can be taken online. Which would cut down my trips to ASU and the amount of spending to get me to and from school, not to mention I would not need to buy a parking pass.

Advice? Help? Suggestions? HELP ME PLEASE!

https://webapp4.asu.edu/ugapp/controllerStepB?selection=4 makes you sign in to continue your application so it doesn't really have a breakdown, but based off what you said about each, I'd recommend the photography courses.

That one worked much better. I would still side with the photography class. It just seemed like it would be the neatest class. Are you going to major in one and minor in another? If you do, I would suggest journalism.

If you can do the two, at least then do so. After you're settled, start saving for your next one.
