School of the Arts


Welcome to the School of the Arts (SOTA) where we offer intensive programs in Studio Art, Art History, Music & Music Cognition and Theatre & Film Studies.

Our Vision

Empower students to act as engaged global citizens who contribute to the transformative roles of the arts in society.

Our Mission

To offer niche programs in Art, Art History, Music and Theater & Film Studies in an interdisciplinary School of the Arts supported by staff and faculty dedicated to high quality teaching and research.  Through close connection with faculty we promote excellence in artistic production in all its diverse forms, as well as critical, theoretical analysis and study in historical and contemporary contexts.

Our Values

Through creative arts practices, critical analysis and experiential learning we ignite curiosity and inspire students to question and engage as contributors in their immediate communities and broader society.  Our values are rooted in a commitment to diversity and multi-faceted learning experiences.
