The Department of Fine Arts offers the following: BA in Music, Music Education (K-12) major, Music minor, Art major, and Art minor. These programs follow recommended national and professional guidelines, and they prepare graduates for a variety of career opportunities nationwide. The department faculty are highly competent in the field of music and art, and are active performers and artists.

The fine arts faculty endorses this axiom: Achieved economic success without the fine arts indicates an impoverished life. Without music to bolster mankind's spirit and art and drama to stimulate human intellect and emotions, we exist; we do not live. The efforts of this division expand the spectrum of humanity through the fine arts. We offer joy and entertainment while providing a venue for the development of imagination and creativity. All artistic endeavors interface with solutions to life's problems by providing innovative leadership with unique views to improve community life and preserve its rich traditions.

The Department of Fine Arts is housed in one of the newest buildings on campus. It contains a modern auditorium with recording capabilities, a first class recital hall with live-feed media support, the largest art gallery in central West Virginia, and numerous state-of-the-art practice rooms. The art studios are large with excellent work spaces, and the ceramic studio has been equipped with a new kiln for firing both ceramic and sculpture projects.

Art exhibitions and major music ensembles are open to any member of the college community to provide a creative outlet for all regardless of their major. Our ensembles have performed on the local, state, regional, national and international levels.
