The College of Fine Arts is a unique combination of six academic departments: Art, Art History, Art Education, Dance, Interior Design, and Theatre. Another one of its unique characteristics is its ties to the museum world through the FSU museums - the Museum of Fine Arts on campus and The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota. These museums and additional specialized museum-related programs within each department enrich our curriculum and offer a broad range of learning opportunities.
Our world-class faculty of practicing artists, actors, dancers, designers, historians, art educators, art therapists, and interior designers are dedicated to providing students with the tools, knowledge, and resources that will help them find their own path to success. Believing that success is dependent on both creative vision and technical expertise, the College encourages excellence, critical inquiry, and experimentation.
