We believe in fostering a healthy atmosphere of artistic inquiry, creative exploration, and intellectual rigor. As a department, we are interested in work that is lively and forward-thinking.

We are committed to understanding the social and historical roots from which contemporary work springs. We believe deeply in exploring the interdisciplinary links between both disciplines, and in the value of studying the arts within the liberal arts context of the college. Come take a class, see a show, or audition for a performance. We want to encourage your participation at all levels of interest.
