Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Fine Arts

The Bachelor of Fine Arts program at Flagler College is unique and selective. It is designed for those undergraduate students who have the courage, desire and discipline to begin thinking for themselves and making their own artistic meanings. The BFA is led by Fine Arts professors who are driven to teach and make art. As a faculty, we are fully committed to informing, challenging and nurturing the next generation of artists in finding their voice, making beautiful objects and generating new art experiences in any media or process they wish to explore including community practice, drawing, video, installation, painting, sculpture and more. Students who successfully complete the BFA program at Flagler College have a capstone exhibition in the Crisp Ellert Museum on campus.

Program Description

The BFA Program is an intense studio experience designed to cultivate creative action through rigorous exploration in material and concept.  This program is recommended for students who plan to pursue advanced studies in a Master of Arts (MA) or Master of Fine Arts (MFA) program.  Graduating seniors in the BFA program exhibit their work in the beautiful Crisp Ellert Museum on campus at the end of each semester.

The BFA is a highly selective program in which only the most accomplished students in the fine art program will gain admission.  Applicants will be selected based upon the quality of their portfolio, grades, and faculty recommendations.

Students will apply to the BFA Program through the BFA Portfolio Review, held in the fall and spring semesters of each academic year.  Transfer students may apply for admission to the program after their first semester at Flagler College.
