Welcome to the website of Biola University’s Department of Art. This year the Department of Art is celebrating its 35th anniversary as an acknowledged leader in Christian visual arts education. Today Biola alumni are serving the Lord throughout the United States and around the world in a wide range of art and arts-related fields. Graduates from the department are using their education and professional training to make a difference in the communities in which they live.

The art program’s Bachelor of Fine Arts (B.F.A.) major prepares students to meet the challenges of the 21st century by immersing them in the contemporary visual arts culture that is unique to Los Angeles. Our metropolitan location, with its close proximity to art galleries, museums and major academic institutions, makes the Biola campus an ideal place for the serious study of art. Biola students learn about the art world first-hand by interacting with a vibrant international arts community while integrating their studies into an evangelical Christian world-view.

Whether you are a Biola alumnus, a prospective student, or just an interested arts aficionado, I encourage you to continue visiting our website for updates on our academic programs and current departmental events. Please check out this year’s exhibition schedule in the University Art Gallery, featuring Biola art graduates from 1972 to 2007.
