Our art (BA) and fine arts (BFA) undergraduate programs help students master the fundamentals of visual communication and various media tools. Our faculty teaches in the academy-style, which is a studio-based system of instruction that emphasizes working from direct observation, providing the critical, technical foundations of an artist’s training.
Fontbonne also offers a theatre and performing arts (Bachelor of Arts in Performing Arts) major, which features a carefully designed course grouping to provide a rich and broad background in the performing arts that puts you on center stage. You’ll learn all aspects of theater production, from acting and directing to building sets and stage managing — the spotlight is always on you!
