B.A. in Fine Arts

Our fine arts major allows students to draw from both art history and music history courses, as well as studio art and music lessons or ensembles, in crafting the specific concentration of their major. Students enjoy small class sizes, a special distinction program, and opportunities for hands-on learning on campus and in the City of Syracuse. Many students take their learning a step further with immersion trips, highly-ranked study abroad programs, and internships.
