Fine Arts Major

Suffolk University is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). 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 to immerse yourself in Boston's robust arts community.

As a senior, you’ll prepare for life after graduation 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 BFA studies will culminate in a professional-level exhibit of your artwork in the University’s gallery at the end of the academic year.
