Bachelor of Fine Arts

Creative, Enterprising, and Questioning

The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) is a five-year, strong technical and critical thinking program for the future. Successful students have a passion for creating their art and a heightened intellectual and visual perception. Through the co-op experience, students are introduced to careers in a wide field of art professions.

Our BFA program offers a broad curriculum with the ability to specialize in a single media, or work across media, as students develop their artistic paths. We provide instruction in areas that include Art & Technology, Ceramics, Drawing & Painting, Photography, Printmaking, and Sculpture. We support interdisciplinary practice and encourage experimental artforms.

Three semesters of co-op experiences are integrated into our 5-year curriculum.

The DAAP BFA program has given me an enormous tool box of resources to consult while going forward in my art practice. The capability to perform research here is excellent. This is an exciting place to make art.
