Visual & Performing Arts

Unique among institutions of higher education is The Visual & Performing Arts Department of Becton College, located on the Florham Campus in Madison, NJ. Here we merge all the arts into one department, encompassing animation, computer graphics, film, music, studio arts, theater and video games. Why? Because we believe that they all strive to convey feeling, emotion, atmosphere and a human connection with their audience. We believe that students in all these visual and performing arts can learn from and support one another. We also believe that these creative disciplines require both craftsmanship and creative thinking. Therefore the more experience and exposure to the other related arts, the better artists and craftsmen our students will become. For only once one masters the craft, can one grow into the artist.

The Department of Visual & Performing Arts at FDU offers Bachelor of Arts degrees with concentrations in Animation, Graphic DesignFilm (which includes Film, TV & Original Content), Studio Arts, Theater Arts and Video Game Animation with supplemental courses in art history, illustration, photography, screenwriting, dance and music.
