Preparing Students for lives in the arts
As artists, designers, educators, and scholars of the arts, we are committed to the continued expansion of our knowledge, talents, and skills. Our goal is to integrate new art forms and innovative technologies with strong foundations and traditional studies. Blending of ‘cutting edge’ innovation and conservatory-style training, underpinned by academic rigor, prepares students in all disciplines for successful careers in the arts.
The divergent structure of our programs continually address the shifting nature of art. Each member of our faculty maintains strong enthusiasm, taking inspiration from his or her own work and research, and at the same time inspiring students to accomplish their fullest potential. A long tradition of distinguished faculty has created the best possible environment for
programmatic excellence in art, dance, music, theatre, film and television.
