Welcome to CFA
It’s my pleasure to introduce you to the College of Fine Arts, where we believe that the creative journey offers infinite professional and personal rewards.
Every day, our talented faculty of working artists challenges students to push the boundaries of Theatre, Music, and Visual Arts.
Our curriculum exposes students to the latest methodologies while offering a firm foundation in traditional artistic practice. CFA students turn dreams into compositions, contemplations into paintings, and collaborations into productions. The goal is to provide an education that is both inspiring and enduring. Our graduates conduct and perform in preeminent symphony orchestras, win Gold Statues, paint commissioned murals the most unexpected of places, produce plays on Broadway, design for startups and Fortune 500 companies, and enrich children’s lives through art and music education.
At BU, students are not only taught by a dedicated and lauded faculty, they are exposed to the breadth of experience and knowledge that only a top tier research university can provide. Artists may not always be able predict the future, but our students are taught to embrace and create their own futures, as they are educated about emerging technologies and interdisciplinary thinking. In Boston, artistic expression is at the center of city life. Storied artistic institutions including Symphony Hall, the Museum of Fine Arts, and the Huntington Theatre Company are a short walk away. Better yet, students in CFA gain real world experience through internships at these institutions, along with many others. Suffice to say, in Boston, the opportunities to create and collaborate are limited only by your imagination.
If you haven’t visited, I invite you to come and experience CFA.
You’ll be glad you did.
