The Department of Performance Studies has two undergraduate programs, one in Music and one in Theatre Arts. Each provides a comprehensive, liberal arts-based education in its discipline. A strong goal of our programs is that students will emerge from their education as scholar-artists, informed citizens prepared for the world of work and able to apply the skills acquired in their studies to all of the elements of their lives. For additional information about the Music Program or the Theatre Arts Program, please select from the navigation tabs above.
