Barth Award

Barth Award

The College of Arts and Sciences has established an annual award in honor of former Dean J. Robert Barth, SJ, and his support for the arts.

The J. Robert Barth, SJ, Award for Excellence in the Arts will be given each year at Commencement to a senior who has made an outstanding contribution to Boston College in the fine or performing arts, such as music, theater, dance, film or other visual media.

Fr. Barth served as A&S dean from 1988 until this past summer, when he stepped down to join the English Department faculty. His administration saw a renewed emphasis on the arts at BC, including the development of music and theater majors and the opening of the McMullen Museum of Art.
