Arts Open Houses
Additionally, if you are interested in pursuing the arts (including Drama, Dance, Music, Studio Art and Art History) as a major or minor or deeply engaging with the arts extracurricularly during your time at Tufts, we recommend that you attend the Arts Open House on the Medford/Somerville campus.
If you are interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts through the SMFA at Tufts, we recommend you attend the Arts Open House on the Fenway campus.
If you are interested in the 5-year Combined Degree program between the School of Arts & Sciences and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts, you are welcome at both events. Those who register for the Open House on our Fenway Campus will receive instructions on how to add a morning tour of the Medford/Somerville campus to their schedule. This Open House is therefore recommended for students who would like to see both campuses.
Arts Open House on the Medford/Somerville Campus
Whether you’re planning to major in the performing arts, minor in studio art, apply for Tufts 5-year combined-degree program with the New England Conservatory (NEC), or you’re a pre-med student who has every intent of continuing your passion for drama through extracurriculars (we have a lot of those!), Tufts Arts Open House is the event for you! Students and families will have the opportunity to hear from a panel of current Tufts students in the performing and fine arts, attend mock classes taught by professors in these fields, and learn about the plethora of opportunities to get involved in the arts outside of the classroom (drama, comedy, a capella, performance ensembles, dance, etc.). Also, you will also have the chance to learn about the growing opportunities in studio art through the SMFA at Tufts, whether you are interested in the 5-year Combined Degree BFA + BA/BS program or just taking a few classes in studio art.

For students who are seriously considering the Bachelor of Fine Arts or 5-year Combined Degree (BFA + BA or BS) Program, the SMFA at Tufts Open House lets prospective students and their families get a view of what really happens on campus. Students in both of these programs will spend a significant amount of time on the Fenway Campus, studying in diverse disciplines within the visual arts and working with faculty who are all practitioners in their field. Talk to our current students, tour our studio facilities, and learn more about how the SMFA at Tufts interdisciplinary studio curriculum, paired with an academically rigorous liberal arts education, uniquely prepares students for the ever-evolving world after graduation.
