The Department of Visual and Performing Arts provides a broad knowledge of the arts, and empowers students to understand and create artistic expression. Our program offers a hands-on learning approach to unlock the creative potential of our students while encouraging the curiosity, growth and development of the artistic spirit.
The Department of Visual and Performing Arts houses five programs: art history, music, film, television and media arts, studio art, and theatre. Students can major or minor (hyperlink) in all areas, and many choose to declare double majors to combine their interests.
Our program helps you to grow your intuitive, creative and expressive talents and connect them with reasoning skills. Here, you will develop your own creative process, and give shape to your own experience through experimentation, introspection and risk taking. With this exposure and experience, you will have the creative and artistic abilities to pursue a variety of professional challenges and careers.
