As a Fine Arts student at Otis College, you’ll work through your ideas and make them visual. In this small, mentor-based program, you’ll work both in group studios and one-on-one, artist-to-artist, with our faculty of working professionals.

You can choose from three concentrations in our BFA program: Painting, Photography or Sculpture/New Genres, but we encourage you to work in an interdisciplinary way. In addition to our concentrations, students can take a structured set of special-topic electives in Drawing, Editorial Photography, Film and Video, Performance, Contemporary Clay, and Art Theory and Criticism. 

Our program is both rigorous and flexible—you can tailor it to your needs. You’ll have a studio space of your own and access to a full range of labs, shops, and studios.

Our graduates are poised to show their work professionally and/or continue their studies at the master’s level. Our alumni pursue a wide range of careers in the art world: studio artists, designers, performers, entrepreneurs, gallerists, and more.
