Bachelor of Fine Arts

The BFA program provides the opportunity to combine an in-depth, rigorous liberal arts education at Tufts University with intensive studio arts training at SMFA. Students are considered to be fully enrolled at both schools, and graduate with a BFA degree from Tufts University. A wide array of art history courses taught by Tufts faculty are offered on the SMFA campus, allowing you to begin your academic studies while enrolled in a concentrated studio program. The studio curriculum in the BFA program is entirely elective; you are free to select the courses, faculty members and community resources deemed most important to your artistic development.

Students in the Tufts BFA program who are interested in becoming an art teacher can apply to the MAT program in Art Education. This rigorous path of study is well-suited for artists who are interested in urban education and teaching in multicultural environments. Graduates of the BFA + MAT earn a degree from Tufts and are highly qualified for positions in the teaching field.

In the BFA program, students complete 76 credits of studio art, plus 14 academic courses:

  • 5 courses in art history
  • 1 in social sciences
  • 2 in English writing
  • 1 in culture or language
  • 1 in the humanities
  • 1 in science/technology
  • 3 electives
