University of Free State Fine Arts


Students at the undergraduate level can choose to pursue either the four-year BA (Fine Arts) degree or a three-year Diploma in Fine Arts. A variety of career possibilities await the graduate, in the worlds of art, advertising, museums and education. Both BA (Fine Art) and Diploma courses involve Drawing, History of Art, Painting, Printmaking, and Sculpture. An additional mandatory subsidiary subject (such as a language) can be completed within the first two years of study. For those students wishing to incorporate alternative or new media in the arts, a multi-disciplinary approach is available in the senior years of study. The Department has well-equipped studios where students are taught by practicing artists who are expected to participate and excel at local, national and international levels.
