You want to be an artist? A painter. An actor. A musician. This work will require all of your focus, concentration, and will. And there is no one way to get there. Exciting? Yes. Intimidating? A little. Worth it? Absolutely. You can reach your goals. And there’s a good chance you’ll exceed them. Because that’s what students do here at Boston University College of Fine Arts (CFA).

Arts & Academics Thrive Here.

More than a list of required courses, we view coursework as a set of tools and roadmaps that get you to your personal goal. Each artist must know the elements, structure, context, and history of the field. That’s why a College of Fine Arts education combines artistic rigor with intellectual investigation. Focused, immersive study allows you to delve deep into your discipline, while double majors, minors, study abroad, and internships allow you to expand the breadth of your learning. This is where you can intersect with other disciplines and fully explore your potential. (Maybe you want to be a sculptor/engineer or musician/neuroscientist. You can do that here!) This is where you can focus on the process, not just the result. This is where you can hone your skills, push the limits, and increase your perspective. This is where you will become a multidimensional thinker.

CFA is a close-knit community of artists and musicians all based in one college at one of the most elite research universities in the world. Housing three disciplines under one roof yields incredible synergy and collaborative opportunities for creativity and inquiry. And students study under a talented, dynamic, highly engaged faculty comprised of Broadway producers, noted artists, award-winning designers, and world-renowned musicians and scholars.
