The College of the Arts offers more than fifty majors, minors and concentrations in art & design, broadcasting, communication studies, dance, music and theatre. Twice designated as a Center of Excellence, our college maintains a commitment to quality programs, providing professional training and education for students seeking careers as practitioners, educators, public servants and managers of the arts. Students in the College study and create with some of the finest artist-teachers in the New York metropolitan area. Our faculty includes working composers, designers, fine artists, actors, musicians, directors, choreographers, conductors, broadcasters and communication specialists, including Fulbright, Guggenheim and Howard award winners. What's more, because we are only minutes from Manhattan, internationally recognized guest artists know the School well and come year after year to direct master classes, perform in staged productions, conduct student ensembles and teach what it takes to succeed in the arts.
