Queen’s Bachelor of Fine Art (BFA) is a direct entry program, which means that students enter their major area of focus in their first year of study; only those students admitted to the BFA may enroll in the program's studio courses. Your class of 30 students stays together as a group for four years and will get to know the instructors and other students quite well.
André Bieler, 1896-1989, a prominent Canadian artist and painter, was the founding director of the Agnes Etherington Art Centre and responsible for bringing the visual arts to Queen’s University. A Bachelor of Art Education program was set-up in 1970 and in 1974 a separate Bachelor of Fine Art (BFA) degree was established. The program moved into Ontario Hall in 1976, along with the Art History Programme and the Art Library, which has since moved to the Stauffer Library.
