Our academic departments of MusicTheatre Arts, and Dance are embedded in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at the heart of our major public research university, nestled in the greatest small city for the arts in America.

Collaboration provides opportunities for innovation and fuel for our creative fires. More than half of Performing Arts students are double majors, so our programs welcome and encourage interdisciplinary collaboration.
