The BFA Fine Arts Program at UD combines the best of creative research and hands on experimentation. Students have the opportunity to experience printmaking, painting, ceramics, sculpture, video, photography, animation, and drawing. After completing core courses students have the freedom to choose their own pathway of study that enables them to develop into an active creative force; essentially our students are empowered to impact culture in a meaningful way and positively change the world.
Central to this student-centered approach is the one on one advising–all fine art majors and minors work in direct contact with our professionally active faculty through studio and lecture courses. Additionally, students engage with diverse communities through dynamic visiting artist talks, highly regarded study abroad courses, productive internships, and frequent field trips to major art centers. Individual or shared studios are available for advanced students.
The combination of our professional studio program and dedicated project spaces with the resources of other departments within the University provides unique advantages. Students may work with humanities scholars, engineers, computer scientists, and eminent chemists to further both their studio work and their academic studies.
Our goal is to educate students in the craft, culture, and theory of contemporary fine art to prepare them for successful careers in the arts while learning how to live with a creative awareness.
