Introduction

The College of the Arts is built on the belief that the arts are central to contemporary culture. The arts offer unique ways of knowing, forms of knowledge, areas of experience and means of communication. Students gain breadth in understanding human experience through an exploration of the history and meaning of the arts. In addition, they gain depth by creating and conducting research and promoting art, music, theatre, dance and fashion. Intensive interactions in studio settings characterize much of their learning environment as does regular outreach to the larger community through exhibition, performance and other forms of presentation of student and faculty work.
