Message From the Dean

jeffery gentryThanks for visiting the official webpage of ENMU's College of Fine Arts (CFA)!

The visual, performing, and communication arts are integral to the campus scene here at Eastern. CFA is a unique college, focused on the most creative fields of study: visual art, graphic design, communication/media, music, theatre, and filmmaking. The potential combinations and collaborations are limitless. I like to call CFA the college of creativity.

Our fine-arts professors trained at some of the best graduate schools in the nation, with impressive careers as artists, performers, and producers. If you join us at Eastern, these master teachers will work with you as an individual, not a number, to best help you achieve your academic and pre-professional goals.

Our faculty are well connected and will guide you toward exciting opportunities beyond your college years. You may decide on a career in the arts or media, teaching, graduate study, or one of the many other practical fields in which creative minds are coveted.

We provide enviable labs, studios, and performance spaces, with the same equipment used by today's fine-arts professionals. You'll find yourself engaged right away in performing/producing as a soloist, in musical ensembles, live plays, original films, multimedia journalism, public relations, studio art, or graphic design. We also offer 12 minors so you can gain experience in multiple arts programs.

Again, we are very glad to learn of your interest in the arts community here at ENMU. I'm happy to answer any of your questions, either by telephone at 575.562.2373, or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. I invite you to take-in our beautiful campus and see the great things our students are up to.

You have many choices of how to continue your education; we are confident you will enjoy building your future right here. One thing is certain: you will never grow tired of being a college graduate. I look forward to seeing you at ENMU!

Best regards,
