Artistic and academic scholarship and exploration is central to the mission of the College of Fine Arts.
The work happening within and between the Schools of Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts enhances and impacts the academic discourse at Boston University. It challenges assumptions, forges new paths, and highlights the essential role the arts play in our society.
In this realm of arts-based research, scholarship, and community engagement is where we question, explore, experiment, test, and discover. Research is at the core of Boston University, and the College of Fine Arts practices it every day. It doesn’t happen in isolation. It welcomes outside factors and encourages new perspective. It thrives on connections with our BU colleagues from all disciplines, our neighbors from all corners of our Boston community, and an ever-growing list of professional partners.
