For more than 50 years, the mission of the Perimeter College Fine Arts Department has been to foster student success. To accomplish this, we focus on providing outstanding instruction, excellent facilities, advanced technology and diverse opportunities within a liberal arts setting. An education in the arts at Perimeter College equips our students with the skills and habits of mind that enable them to become self-motivated learners who flourish, actualize their potential and generate a positive impact on the world.

The Department of Fine Arts at Georgia State University Perimeter College is a multi-disciplinary department offering instruction in art, music, theatre, and film. Here’s a closer look:


Our art faculty train students for creative work and scholarship through rigorous course offerings and exceptional facilities. An emphasis on portfolio preparation in all classes makes Perimeter College graduates highly successful in transferring to bachelor degree programs. We offer courses in art history, drawing, photography, painting, ceramics, two- and three-dimensional design, and sculpture. Learn More




Through lessons, ensembles, theory and keyboard courses, students develop foundational music skills that propel them on stage or into further bachelor’s degree study. Students have regular opportunities to perform as soloists or as part of our ensembles, as well as develop skills to create and analyze music. Our faculty members are active performers, composers, and arrangers who bring a wealth of practical knowledge and enthusiasm to the classroom. Learn more.


We offer small class sizes, professional theatre faculty, “on-the-job” training and work on high-quality theatrical productions. Students are well-prepared for further college study or entry into the job market. Areas of specialization include acting, directing, theatre history and criticism, playwriting, design, theatre technology, theatre studies (education) and creative drama.

Film examines the analysis, history, theory and critique of the film industry, allowing students to learn how art, business and technology combine to create films that express our 21st century culture. Students will be able to examine the convergence of art, technology, industry, politics and culture and learn to think critically about movies and other forms of visual media. They will learn how cinematography, lighting, music and sound design reinforce the themes and character development in films. The film pathway also is designed to help students smoothly transition to the bachelor’s degree program at Georgia State University, where film is one of the most popular majors.
