Come Visit CFA (Virtually!)
While there is nothing like being on campus to experience Boston University, we have introduced many opportunities for you to connect with the BU College of Fine Arts community and speak with us virtually.
Located in BU’s emerging arts district, CFA is a community of musicians, visual artists, and theatre-makers who thrive in the spaces of creative experimentation, and pursue the many opportunities available at one of the world’s best universities. We invite you to explore what makes CFA unique and join us in conversation.

Combining Art and Business

And just being able to combine and have that business knowledge in addition to my graphic design work is really great.”
