    Meet Our Faculty

    Our world is filled with challenging issues- many of which will be unsolvable using the solutions of the past. Studying Fine Arts can be among the richest and valuable experiences you'll have during your time on campus and can enhance your life and career for years to come.

    Our department has been organized to include the areas of visual arts, music, and theater, which create through curriculum and events, a campus community conscience for the fine arts.  As a department without majors, the department offers a minor as well as a full range of diverse courses, events, and activities. Our fine arts team works closely with the General Education program in performing a critical role in its mission. 

    Philosophically, we seek to reinforce the importance of the fine arts in forming self definition, in developing alternative methods of communication and awareness, in undertaking unique personal challenges, and in balancing one’s academic experience to include the hands on and live interactions characteristic of these disciplines. Our department strives to introduce and develop the arts spirit within all students at Saint Francis University and to show you how to incorporate the Fine Arts into your life not as a luxury but as part of the daily design of your life.
