Loyola University Chicago

Department of Fine and Performing Arts


The Department of Fine and Performing Arts offers coursework in Dance, Music, Theatre, and Fine Arts. Students can choose a course of study from any of our 7 different majors or 10 different minors, or simply choose to explore a class in the art that interests them.

As an exclusively undergraduate liberal arts program, our courses are open to all Loyola students and require no audition or portfolio review for admittance into our programs. However, several of our classes require the completion of pre-requisite courses and a few require placement auditions to assure students are placed in classes appropriate to their skill level. The DFPA also offers a certificate in Graphic Design for non-degree seeking students.
