Discover an education where culture and classwork are intrinsically linked.

Anchored on the vibrant Avenue of the Arts, our campus is located in the cultural district of Center City—the heart of downtown Philadelphia. Our campus is literally embedded in culture, so it’s no surprise that artists, designers, performers, writers and creative individuals of all kinds call UArts—and Philly—home.

You’ll get to know local art organizations, galleries, museums, theaters, venues and more as our accomplished faculty of practicing professionals utilize industry connections to offer networking opportunities and behind-the-scenes experiences. UArts connects students to a wide variety of internships with local organizations. Alumni can be seen around Philadelphia practicing in a variety of fields as Philadelphia’s regional arts and culture sector has a $4.1B effect on the area’s economy and creates the equivalent of 55,225 full-time jobs.*
