The College of Fine Arts (1925-1963) was an academic administrative unit at Brigham Young University.
The College of Fine Arts was established in 1925 when the College of Arts and Sciences transferred over some of its departments to create a separate college. It continued in operation under its name until it was established as the College of Fine Arts and Communications in 1963. College deans included: Gerrit de Jong, Jr. (1925-1959), John R. Halliday (acting dean, 1947), and Conan E. Mathews (1959-1963).
The College of Fine Arts and Communications (1963-) provides coursework and degrees in the fine arts at Brigham Young University. The College of Fine Arts and Communications was founded in 1963 following a reorganization of the College of Fine Arts. Currently, it consists of the departments of Communications, Theatre and Media Arts, and Visual Arts and has responsibility over BYU Broadcasting, the Museum of Art, Newsnet, and the School of Music. The college has been administered over by the following deans: Conan E. Mathews (1963-1966), Clawson Cannon (1967), Lorin F. Wheelwright (1967-1973), Lael J. Woodbury (1973-1982), James A. Mason (1982-1993), Bruce L. Christensen (1993-2000), K. Newell Dayley (2000-2003), Stephen M. Jones (2003- 2015), and Ed Adams (2015-).
