While all BFA students access liberal arts and sciences courses as a crucial component of their program, some students have future goals that require additional, dedicated study in one of our School of Arts and Sciences majors. This is where the 5-Year Combined Degree BFA + BA/BS Combined Degree Program comes in.
If you’re a future mathematician who intends to use 3D forms as teaching models, a future diplomat who plans to immerse yourself in the arts community of Quito, or another combination that has yet to be imagined, the Combined Degree will give you a bespoke dual-degree program leading to both a Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree. Students must fulfill the foundation, distribution, and concentration requirements of a Bachelor of Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree in the School of Arts and Sciences, in addition to the SMFA at Tufts studio requirements.
In addition to your BFA, you graduate with a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science in a major of your choice.
