Performing and Creative Arts Department Overview

Our departmental programs share a mission to educate, mentor, and train students who wish to pursue both the practice and theory of the arts. In addition to preparing students majoring in the arts and those planning to receive advanced degrees in graduate school, the Department’s courses meet the needs and interests of students in the liberal arts and sciences, and foster the role of the arts within the framework of a liberal arts education.
