Study Fine Arts in Boston

In the Fine Arts BFA Program at Suffolk University, you'll discover the importance of art in culture and society while building your studio practice. The small size of our Fine Arts program allows you to work individually with faculty, who will challenge you to develop your visual language.

As a Fine Arts major, you'll become well versed in current and traditional visual precedents. From there you'll expand upon the art you create and the way you think about your work while investigating how to place your vision within the context of contemporary art movements. You'll visit local galleries and museums during upper-level seminars and begin the process of immersing yourself in the Boston arts community.

As a senior, you’ll prepare for post-college life by acquiring the job search strategies and survival skills that are essential for artists. You’ll create a catalogue to market your work, participate in gallery talks, and learn the techniques involved in gallery and museum exhibition. Your Bachelor of Fine Arts studies will culminate in a professional-level exhibit of your artwork, which will be installed in the University’s gallery at the end of the academic year.
