Overview 

The Department of Fine Arts invites students to experience art as both scholarship and a process of creation. By uniting artistic excellence with intellectual inquiry, we affirm the importance of a broad education in preparing our students for creative participation in a changing society.

In both the Art History and Studio Art tracks, study in the arts exemplifies the ideals of a liberal arts education and allows each student to realize, with excellence, his or her potential for expression and informed vision. This degree provides an excellent foundation for a career in the arts, as well as preparation for work in a range of fields valuing communication, creativity, critical thinking, management and perception skills.  

The  Department of Fine Arts website also contains career-related resources from the department such as the Mortimer-Hays Brandeis Traveling Fellowship, information on the collections and internships at the Rose Art Museum, and internships at major U.S. museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art, Guggenheim Museum, Philadelphia Museum of Art, National Gallery of Art, Art Institute of Chicago, Christie’s New York and Getty Museum. Keep up to date on department activities through The Canvas: Fine Arts News.
