Apply to UArts

Take your talent to the next level.

Our students are makers, doers, dreamers and thinkers who bring unique points of view to their art and push the boundaries of their fields to innovate their crafts. Our interdisciplinary education, accomplished faculty of industry professionals and small class sizes have produced successful, award-winning alumni who are creative leaders across disciplines.

The collaborative nature of UArts is one of the main reasons I chose to attend the University, and specifically, the Sculpture [emphasis]. It is truly inspiring to see so many different works of art covering almost every medium you can think of; each presenting a unique perspective and personal voice.
— Olivia Lane BFA ’20 Sculpture (BFA in Fine Arts)
