Program Description

Our graduates emerge as skilled and versatile generalists

The General Fine Arts major offers you a broad exposure to the studio arts with a focus on materials and processes. This program supports artists who would like to explore widely while developing competencies in multiple studio arts practices.

While each undergraduate program at PNCA offers a freedom in determining one’s academic path, the GFA program offers maximum flexibility as it permits you to select your core studio courses across studio art practices in departments including Painting, Sculpture, and Printmaking as well as electives across the college. In addition, you’ll take two theory and practice classes which help you situate your work in a larger contemporary and historical context.
