In 1966 an ad hoc committee recommended that a Faculty of Fine Arts be established at the University of Calgary. Before this period, a joint Department of Fine Arts and Fine Arts Education was administered by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and the Faculty of Education, and courses in art, drama and music were offered by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. The Faculty of Fine Arts opened in July 1967, and was comprised of the Departments of Drama, Art and Music which each offered four-year programs. In 1978, Masters programs were approved for these areas. The Faculty was governed by a Council which determined policies for curriculum, standards, enrolments, approval of new programs and administrative procedures. The Executive Council was the screening committee for the preparation of all material that was considered by the Faculty of Fine Arts Council.
In 2010, the Faculty of Fine Arts merged with the Faculties of Communication and Culture, Humanities, and Social Sciences to form a new ""super faculty,"" the Faculty of Arts.
Deans of the Faculty of Fine Arts: A.R. Johnston, 1968-1973; J. Marchbank Salmon, 1973-1980; L.A. Robertson, 1980-1986; B.S. Sheehan, 1986-1987 (Acting Dean); J.P.L. Roberts, 1987-1996; M. Yacowar, 1996-2000; A.E. Calvert, 2000-2010.
