Visual and Performing Arts

VISUAL & PERFORMING ARTS DEPARTMENT at UCCS

FUELING THE NEXT GENERATION OF ARTISTS IN OUR COMMUNITY AND BEYOND

A key component of the Ent Center for the Arts is teaching and learning. The UCCS Visual and Performing Arts program prepares students for a variety of careers in the arts in a state-of-the-art space.

At student fingertips are breathtaking experiences in art history, film studies, museum studies & gallery practice, music, theatre & dance, and visual art. All fueled by individual attention in small classes from a diverse group of faculty comprised of professional artists, scholars, and performers who are passionate about the arts.

Our students graduate to become successful actors, directors, writers, teachers, creatives, artists, performers, composers, and managers and operatives in the arts.
