About Us

Dean's Office

The University of Utah College of Fine Arts faculty and programs challenge, immerse and ultimately prepare the committed student for a rewarding career in the arts. While here, students study under passionate, world-renowned faculty who provide exciting, diverse experiences that are truly life changing for our students. And the rigorous practice and ardent curriculum prepares our students to gracefully transition from their education into meaningful lives as artists, scholars, and educators. Our alumni become change factors in their communities and full participants as global citizens.

I invite each of you to explore and experience all the richness and enlightenment that the College of Fine Arts at the University of Utah has to offer in our five academic units: Art & Art History, Dance, Film & Media Arts, Music, and Theatre. I believe that you will be changed, professionally and personally, for the rest of your life.
