The School of the Arts provides the highest level of education in order to forge the next generation of visual and performing artists, arts managers, and citizens devoted to the arts. Students are prepared for careers in their fields and are inspired to be engaged and innovative contributors to society. The prestigious faculties in the Conservatories of Dance, Music, and Theater Arts and the School of Art and Design, cultivate, nurture, and prepare students through rigorous and comprehensive studio practice informed by theoretical, conceptual and historical study. The professional degree programs challenge students to be reflective and articulate, productive and entrepreneurial, and creative and innovative practitioners of their reflective art forms. The liberal arts degrees provide an overview of contemporary research methods and cultural theory, history, and studio practice in a broad liberal arts context to introduce students to creative analytic and critical thinking. In addition, the School offers students not choosing to major in the arts exposure to the practice of the arts through specialized courses in studio practice.
