The Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Sculpture at the Tyler School of Art and Architecture helps students develop creative, intellectual and practical skills in expansive, state-of-the-art facilities and prepares them for successful careers as artists and professionals in a range of industries.
Tyler Sculpture majors join a warm community of bold thinkers and makers who, through intense study of theory and the exploration of materials and media, become critical thinkers and problem solvers. Students develop technical proficiency and gain practical knowledge of technology, including robotics, digital fabrication, video editing, woodworking, metalworking and more.
The curriculum emphasizes interdisciplinary collaboration and experimentation. Through studio courses and field trips, students explore art-making strategies in social and cultural contexts and are pushed to develop a personal voice.
Tyler offers access to the region’s vibrant contemporary art scene in Philadelphia and nearby cities like New York and Washington, D.C. Students graduate to become socially-conscious practicing artists, find employment in education, industrial design, fabrication and more and earn placements in top graduate programs.
