The Department of Fine Arts includes major programs in art, music, and theater arts. The art program offers areas of specialization in studio art, digital arts, and art history. In studio art, students concentrate in painting, sculpture, or photography. In digital arts, students concentrate in graphic design or animation. The theater program offers concentrations in acting, design and technology, musical theater, and filmmaking. Minor programs are available in each area and include minors in studio art, digital arts, art history, graphic design, animation, museum studies, music, and theater. In addition, in cooperation with the Institute for Effective Education, students can complete majors in art, music, or theater arts that meet the certification requirements for preparing students to teach these subjects (K-12). Major requirements for each of the programs can be completed only through daytime attendance. Additional information about the program can be obtained from the department office on the second floor, Fine Arts Building.

All students at Rutgers University-Camden are encouraged to take fine arts courses to enhance programs of study in other areas. Prospective majors and minors in one of the areas in art, music, or theater may be required to take placement exams, audition, or submit a portfolio, as appropriate to the area of study, for admission to specific areas of study within fine arts at the discretion of the faculty. Departmental honors programs are also available. For more information, contact the fine arts office.
