Greeting from the Chair of Fine Arts


As the Chair of Fine Arts I welcome you to our website. I am excited about your interest in our areas of study. I am a proud graduate of MVSU with a bachelor of music degree. The department continues to be supported by incredible teachers and mentors whose focus is training musicians and educators for the future of music. Our programs are accredited by the National Association of of Schools of Music (NASM) and the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD). I can honestly say that the MVSU Fine Arts Department is place to develop your artistry.  You will receive training from educators who are also working artists and researchers in their areas of expertise. You will also enjoy countless opportunities to explore a vast range of academics, from across the University which may support your interests and career goals. We welcome your interest and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. Thanks for considering attending Mississippi Valley State University.
