Art is Smart

Visual and Performing Arts students and faculty make works of art that connect us with the world. Our programs prepare students to be flexible, creative professionals and strong collaborators. Our students major in theatre, entertainment technology, and sound; minor in art and music; connect across disciplines; and engage with our community. Everyone is welcome here and there is something here for everyone.
