Key notes on the program

Art is an expression of our thoughts, emotions, intuitions, and desires, but it is even more personal than that: it’s about sharing the way we experience the world, which for many is an extension of one’s personality. It is the communication of intimate concepts that cannot be faithfully portrayed by words alone.

B.A in Fine Arts is a unique 3 year program that Dr.M.G.R Educational and Research Institute recommends for you if you have a flair for making everything you do aesthetically appealing. You could be an artist whose works attract awe from any eye that glimpses past you, or you could be a performer who could steal emotions from those minds that are glued to your performance. Either way, a degree course in Fine Arts is your cuppa.

The course equips you to have a job oriented, multi-faceted skill set, that enables you to explore your interests in art. Your job perspectives after the course empower you to be a freelance artist or a teacher; a critic or a writer or an art director.
