Loyola University Chicago

Fine Arts

Department of Fine and Performing Arts


The Fine Arts program offers several majors: Art History; Sculpture & CeramicsDrawing, Painting, & Printmaking; Photography; and Visual Communication. Minors are available in each of the above Fine Arts majors, including a Studio Art Minor that combines elements of the five majors.

Each student’s course of study is tailored through consultation with an advisor to his or her needs, capabilities, and professional goals. This flexibility stresses individuality and allows students to broaden and enhance their professional experience.

Loyola University Chicago offers a prime location for this study of fine arts. Its museums, concert halls, and libraries are a vast resource for academic study. And because this city constantly produces fresh examples of jazz, architecture, and public art, Loyola students gain vital access to the living history and practice of the arts.
