Fine Arts Foundation

Committed to a BFA? The visual arts major is for you. Focus on fine art, graphic design, or lens-based art: photography/video. Each develops a strong core competency in visual thinking, drawing, and 2-D, 3-D, and 4-D art. You’ll draw on this foundation for life, as new interests and opportunities arise.

Great Spaces

Great spaces spark great work. And there’s no better space to create, contemplate, and curate art than our home base, the 70,000-square-foot Art and Interactive Multimedia Building. Art studios and workshops. Recording studios and digital arts labs. Plus lots and lots of exhibition space to display your creativity.

Global Perspectives

Around the globe and right on campus, cultivate a worldview on art. Tour world heritage sites through our Landmarks Series travel-study courses. Study with an international faculty of scholar-artists. Connect with visiting artists exhibiting in our galleries. Bonus! World-class art is a day trip away in New York and Philadelphia.
