Welcome to UConn’s School of Fine Arts!

We offer our students the best of two worlds: the conservatory or art school, and the university. Students benefit from professional arts training in leading visual-arts and performing-arts departments and from the unparalleled academic education offered by a leading national research university.

The School of Fine Arts encompasses four academic departments: Art and Art History, Digital Media and Design, Dramatic Arts, and Music. All of these departments offer degrees at the graduate and undergraduate levels, graduate certificates, and enrichment programs. We emphasize creative and academic achievement, professional readiness, and diverse and international perspectives on the arts.

UConn also provides many opportunities for students to engage in independent creative and scholarly projects through generous funding for student research. Our Education Abroad programs in London, England, and Florence, Italy, and our international concert tours provide unique opportunities to study, create art, and to perform on a world stage.

The School of Fine Arts offers a full calendar of performances and exhibitions to enrich cultural life on campus and in the region. The William Benton Museum of Art, the Jorgensen Center for the Performing Arts, the Contemporary Art Galleries, the Connecticut Repertory Theatre, von der Mehden Recital Hall, and the Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry bring the arts to UConn and partner with our academic programs on innovative education initiatives.
