College of Visual and Performing Arts

The mission of the College of Visual and Performing Arts is to provide an innovative contemporary education to prepare future leaders in art, design, media, music, and communication.​

Our students have it all: the intensity, the immersion, and the creative environment of an art, design, media, music, or communication school plus the energy, excitement, and diversity that large universities offer. Select a single major, add a minor, or declare a double major; find the passion that prepares you for the future of your dreams.

No matter which program you choose, creative avenues abound to develop your skills, practice your techniques, and cultivate your vision. This is where our excellent faculty, over 100 strong, come in. Our professors are committed to your growth as an individual. Experts in their field, they are passionate about inspiring students to meld their passions with ideas from the larger university.

Expand your horizons. Study on our picturesque campus in a tranquil atmosphere away from distractions. Hear world-class artists at KU Presents! and attend Faculty First Thursdays. Be inspired by the big city life of Philadelphia, New York City, Baltimore, or Washington on a field trip or with the Art Bus. Venture further afield with a study abroad experience. The choices are boundless.

Imagine a community that values your creativity. Discover the arts at Kutztown University.
