Creative together

If you're ready to sing, act, play, perform, draw, create, train, sculpt, compose, paint, direct, design or build, we're here to facilitate your creative and artistic growth through one of our many major and minor programs.

As the only university in Minnesota to have the distinction of national accreditations in its art, theatre, and music programs, we are committed to excellence from our faculty and students in the visual, performing, and digital arts.
