The Place of Choice
We’re the only art school in the U.S. that allows our students to collaborate across traditional lines. Painters can minor in piano, dancers can study film, guitarists can take classes in screenwriting.
With more than 30 majors, 30 minors and 13 graduate programs in visual arts, performing arts, design and liberal studies, UArts develops alumni who are not only leaders in their disciplines, but also creative thinkers able to succeed in any path they choose.
We are more because you are more.
