Portfolio Reviews

All students applying for a BFA in Design or a BA in Theatre (with a design, technology, management emphasis) must schedule and interview and/or portfolio review. All information regarding application, deadlines, costs, and admission requirements can be found on the FIU Admissions Homepage.

Since the BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) is a design and production degree, your portfolio should include examples of all your visually creative pursuits, i.e., drawing, painting, photography, doodles, graphics, crafts, theatrical design in any area – include preparation materials, process pictures, as well as photos of outcome, anything that demonstrates your creative self.


Be prepared for a short conversation with the Design & Production faculty. Be ready to discuss the materials in your portfolio, your previous creative work, shows on which you’ve worked, the kind of performing arts you enjoy and why, and performing arts that you have seen or studied. If interested in Stage Management, bring one or two stage management production books that show your organizational strategies, blocking, cueing, communications from a rehearsal or performance to show at the interview.
