Fine & Performing Arts Degrees

The Fine & Performing Arts Department offers students the opportunity to pursue one of two distinctive paths: visual arts or performing arts.

Fine arts students receive a great deal of personal attention while developing a critical and historical perspective for assessing their work. In addition, our M.F.A. students benefit from interaction with the prestigious Vermont Studio Center. We offer the following fine arts programs:

  • B.A. Fine Arts
  • B.F.A. Studio Arts
  • M.F.A. Studio Arts
  • Licensure in art


Performing arts students also enjoy a high level of personal attention, along with a strong emphasis on performing both in class and on stage. (Technical theater majors gain valuable hands-on experience through work at Dibden Center for the Arts and internships at a number of area venues.) Students may explore the following programs:

  • B. A. Music
  • B. A. Musical Theater
  • B. A. Theater and Drama
  • A. A. Technical Theater
  • Teacher licensure in music education, theater arts and dance
