Students in drawing class

Welcome to the School of the Arts!

St. Cloud State is implementing a major academic reorganization that reshapes how students are prepared for life, work and citizenship in the 21st century. The website is changing to reflect a new academic framework that focuses on active and applied learning, community engagement, sustainability, and global and cultural learning. We anticipate that much will be changing with our School’s website, so we ask that you return often to see what SCSU and the School of the Arts has in store for you.

The School of the Arts is committed to excellence from its faculty and students in the visual, performing and digital arts. SCSU is the only university in Minnesota to have the distinction of national accreditations in its art, theatre and music programs.  Additionally, our vibrant and growing film studies program, in combination with the rest of the School of the Arts, provide arts coursework and experiences for students, our community, and the greater St. Cloud region.

We hope that you will find opportunities for creative and artistic growth in one of our many major or minor programs. If you are interested in developing your artistic pursuits further and are uncertain if you want to major in one of our arts programs, you should know that several opportunities to participate are available. Take a class, sing, act, play, perform, draw, create, train, dance, sculpt, compose, paint, direct, design, build, educate—PARTICIPATE and be engaged. We encourage you to visit our arts departments, inquire on how you can get involved, and make the most of your time and talent at SCSU.

Suggested plans of study for all majors in the School of the Arts are available in the University Catalog.
