Research and Centers
UArts is reimagining the arts university experience.
In addition to the distinct opportunity to study outside your major and in Philadelphia’s vibrant cultural center, we’re breaking new ground for creative exploration, expression and learning, year after year.
The ways in which UArts is advancing human creativity are expansive. Our research and centers are just a few of them.
Lightbox Film Center at University of the Arts will have a primary home in a purpose-designed screening room on Broad Street.

The Art Alliance at UArts, the oldest interdisciplinary arts center in the nation, is a historic landmark that will also soon serve as an exciting, thought-provoking destination for contemporary arts.
