Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Visual Arts

Established in 1954 to combine the intensive studio education of an art school with the opportunities of a large urban university, Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Visual Arts is committed to educating the eye, hand, and mind of the artist. The School prepares students to think seriously, to see critically, to make intensely, and to act with creative agency in the contemporary world. The School centers its teaching philosophy on the belief that students become visual artists when education, practice, and awareness of historical and contemporary context enable them to think critically and imaginatively, and to express those ideas with skill and conviction. With rigorous graduate and undergraduate fine arts programs that are rooted in studio practice, Boston University College of Fine Arts School of Visual Arts provides highly motivated students with programs in the bedrock disciplines of the fine arts coupled with a vast array of electives and liberal arts opportunities.
