For Visual and Performing Artists
Whether you’re interested in visual or performing arts, Cornish College of the Arts offers multiple pathways for study. If you’re seeking a career as a designer, you can choose from multiple BFAs, including Illustration, Interaction Design, Object Design, and others. If you see your future in the fine arts or working with film and video, you will find degrees in Game Art, Film, Animation, and Art (photography, drawing, painting, new media, and more). In the performing arts, if you’re drawn to the spotlight, you can major in Musical Theater or Music. But if you’re more comfortable behind the scenes working to bring performances to life, you can focus on dance choreography, scenic design, or playwriting. Our commitment to interdisciplinary arts education allows you the room to explore various ways of making art in and outside your major and provides you the necessary tools for a future as a working artist.
Cornish College of the Arts is a hub for artists looking to begin their journey toward a career in the arts.
