The Department of Fine Arts offers major programs in Art Education, Music Industry, Theatre Arts and Visual Arts. Minors are offered music, theatre arts, visual arts, and art history. Collaterals are offered in music, theatre arts, and visual arts. Introductory courses in art and theatre are offered for nonmajors. All Francis Marion University students may pursue the introductory course in music and performance ensembles.
Students majoring in Art Education, Music
Industry, Theatre Arts, and Visual Arts combine general
education courses with lecture courses in art education,
art, music or theatre history, and upper-level courses
emphasizing studio/performance. Theatre Arts majors may
specialize in performance areas or design and technical
production areas. Visual Arts majors may specialize in
ceramics, visual communication, painting, or
photography. A Music Industry degree is offered. These
major programs serve as ends in themselves as well as
preparation for graduate study, related careers, and the
teaching of art.
In support of the University's mission to enrich the culture of the surrounding region, members of the community having an interest in the arts are welcome to take advantage of our visual and performing arts classes as non-degree students. Such classes include ceramics, drawing, painting, photography, acting, costume design, stagecraft, concert band, etc.
