The interdisciplinary arts program at St. John Fisher University provides students with the opportunity to study art through collaboration with various art institutions in the Rochester community, including Flower City Arts Center, Writers and Books, the Rochester Fringe Festival, the Rochester Contemporary Art Center, the Memorial Art Gallery of the University of Rochester, Geva Theatre, and BOA Editions, Ltd.
Students are also able to study such topics as art history, theater and performance, and dance history. Utilizing performing and visual arts spaces in Murphy Hall, students enroll in studio classes in theater, dance, music, and the visual arts (painting, drawing, design, video, and photography). Student performances and exhibitions are embedded into the curriculum.
The minor also collaborates with student-run music, dance, and theater groups on campus.
Additionally, students may enroll in arts-related courses not offered at Fisher and audition for bands and orchestras at Nazareth University through inter-institutional registration with no extra tuition charge.
