Collaboration, Growth and Opportunity

In the College of Performing Arts, we are training artists and transforming lives, every single day. Our students have exceptional opportunities to learn from master artists and to experience performance in venues ranging from small studios to a state-of-the-art facility like the Musco Center for the Arts. The end-result is a strong record of alumni who have enjoyed rich and diverse careers in the performing arts around the world.
