Bachelor of Fine Arts Overview

The Media Arts degree program at Robert Morris University offers a stimulating learning environment where students are encouraged to explore their creative interests while developing the necessary tools to build an exciting and rewarding career in the design, photography, communications and television/video production industries. The program equips students with a focused education experience combined with a real-world business and communications skills curriculum. 

The program utilizes state-of-the-art facilities and is taught by professors who are practicing artists, designers, photographers and film/video specialists. 

To respond to the increasingly diverse needs of the design industry and the challenge of new technology, all students sample the areas of graphic design, photography, television/video production and interactive/web design. This enables students to choose one of these four areas with confidence for their final concentration and understand the important links between the disciplines.

The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is more specialized and intensive in the areas of concentration, with 39 credits of RMU core requirements, 9 credits in business studies, and 78 credits of Media Arts coursework. The degree suits those who are clear that they wish to pursue a career in one of the four concentration areas, although they do not have to choose one until the sophomore year.
