The Performing Arts Department offers a unique interdisciplinary approach to the study of dance, music, and theatre within the liberal arts context.
We also provide a wide range of pre-professional training for students interested in pursuing graduate studies and a career in the performing arts. Students selecting a Performing Arts major with an emphasis in dance, music, or theatre, are required to take a sequence of courses in their specific discipline and a breadth courses in the other two areas.
