College of Fine Arts Mission Statement

The Warren M. Angell College of Fine Arts provides opportunities for all OBU students to explore and experience the fine arts as an integral part of a Christian liberal arts education. The curricula of the college offers strong professional programs in visual and graphic art, music performance and education, communication, print and digital media, and theatre. The college's diverse course offerings and performance opportunities enable students to acquire a comprehensive background of artistic and performance experiences built on the foundation of a biblical worldview. 

Students in the college receive individual attention, maximizing the opportunity for artistic, academic and spiritual growth. Through pedagogical and personal example, the faculty seeks to lead students in developing an appreciation for the fine arts, artistic creation and aesthetic judgment with the purpose of transforming the lives of our students to reflect the artistry of the Creator.
