Portfolio Requirements

A Portfolio is required for the following concentrations:

  • Digital Art and Design
  • Illustration
  • New Media Studies

After completing several foundation courses, students are required to submit a portfolio to enroll in 300-level (or higher) studio courses. Students whose portfolios do not meet standards may be required to take supplemental courses.

HOW TO SUBMIT

  • Follow each concentration submission guide below.
  • Students should name all the files clearly. (for example ART110_1.jpg, ART110_2.jpg, ART122_1.pdf)
  • Make sure each image file is as small as 1Mb and does not exceed 2Mb in size.
  • Organize all the required digital files and documents in a folder named by the student's full name.
  • Depending on the file size of the folder, students can compress(zip) the folder and send it through an email, or if it is too large to go through email, students can upload the folder to their Eastern OneDrive(The link settings have been selected on ‘People in Eastern Conn...te University with the link’ prior to sharing a link.), then share a link with Terry Lennox, Chair of Art and Art History Department.
  • The faculty will review the students’ portfolios and the secretary will email the decision.
