The Department of Fine Arts
The University of West Alabama is the cultural center for the Black Belt Region. At the core of this commitment is the Fine Arts Department, which houses the Theatre, Art and Music programs. We seek to honor the rich artistic traditions of the area while encouraging our students to develop their own unique approaches to the arts. To this end, the Fine Arts Department has created an Interdisciplinary Arts Degree which provides students an opportunity to shape their education and combine courses from Theatre, Music, Art, and Creative Writing. This exciting opportunity is the only program of its kind in the state of Alabama.
In addition, we provide a wealth of “hands on” learning opportunities to supplement classroom instruction, including student art shows, UWA Theatre productions, and participation in the university choirs. All of these efforts are driven by a dedicated and diverse faculty that is committed to the education of students and the fostering of creative endeavors.
