About the College of Fine Arts

The Boston University College of Fine Arts is a vibrant community of artists that brings together the School of Music, the School of Theatre, and the School of Visual Arts. Established in 1954, CFA offers professional training in the arts in conservatory-style environments for undergraduate and graduate students, complemented by a liberal arts curriculum for undergraduate students. Education at the College of Fine Arts begins on the BU campus and extends into Boston—a rich center of cultural, artistic, and intellectual activity—and reaches beyond the city to international programs as well.

Founded in 1839, Boston University is an internationally recognized private research university with more than 30,000 students participating in undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs. BU consists of 17 colleges and schools along with a number of multidisciplinary centers and institutes that are central to the school’s research and teaching mission.
