Developing an articulate understanding of the arts and their place in society is a critical component of the liberal arts curriculum at Hampden-Sydney College. The purpose of the Fine Arts Department is to help each student develop in himself, and recognize in the work of others, the creative and expressive human spirit.

The Department of Fine Arts offers majors in Theatre or Visual Arts and a minor in Music.
