Earn your Bachelor of Fine Arts through Penn and the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts
Earn your Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree while studying at two of Philadelphia’s most prestigious institutions. Since 1929, the University of Pennsylvania has partnered with the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts to provide students with an unparalleled opportunity to pursue their artistic passions and intellectual pursuits in the Ivy League.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts offers self-motivated and committed students the chance to design a curriculum at the intersection of their interests. As a Penn BFA student, you have access to a broad variety of courses taught throughout the School of Arts and Sciences and the College of Liberal and Professional Studies, including Penn LPS Online courses. Flexible course scheduling options include day and evening campus courses, as well as a variety of asynchronous online courses.
The Bachelor of Fine Arts program prioritizes the power of personal connection—between students, teachers, and program staff—and BFA students have access to Penn advisors to assist them in navigating their Penn experience.
