    Which college doesn't need a bachelor's degree of art to enter for master degree?

    I'm fairly certain that, by definition, master degree programs require you to have a bachelors degree in a related field.

    As Meloncov said, you're S.O.L. on that. You'll have to just bite the bullet.

    Although, depending on the program, not necessarily a BFA.

    True. Say if you had a BLA (Bachelor of Liberal Arts) which leaned slightly over towards the arts in certain areas then maybe. It pretty much comes down to what you majored in, how liberal the college's policies are, and how well the courses you took overlap with what they want out of a BFA.

    If you really want to try you should make yourself a list of colleges who offer a MFA that you could feasibly enroll in and get in contact with them directly.

    Part of me has to ask, why do you want a Masters degree if you're not willing to put in the work for your undergrad degree? Is it ego?

    And also think about it from a college's point of view- is there a reason for them to allow you into their program if you don't have the qualifications? Not unless you're some groundbreaking phenom, I don't see a snowball's chance that any reputable program would let you in. Sorry.
