(Richmond, VA)- Students interested in visual arts, theatre, and music will once again be able to fine tune their skills through Virginia Union University’s revived Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) major. Students will have the opportunity to pursue a BFA degree beginning fall 2011.
The Board of Trustees gave its approval to reinstate the program at its May meeting. Although VUU had Fine Arts major in the past, the revitalized program differs in that students will now select a primary area of concentration from three disciplines– visual arts, music, or theatre and they are also required to select a secondary area of concentration combining two of the three disciplines such as Theatre and Music.
“As a liberal arts University, we’ve always been deeply rooted in the arts. We have a strong tradition and were at one time known throughout the United States for our University choir. I’m thrilled that we’re returning to our roots and offering a viable educational opportunity for young musicians, thespians, and artists,” said Dr. Claude G. Perkins, president of Virginia Union University.
