The School of Performing Arts at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is accepting applications to join us in the Fall of 2023 starting August 1st, 2022. The School of Performing Arts is large enough to offer a variety of experiences and challenges, and small enough that our student receive the individual attention they need. Our curriculum is innovative and emphasizes creativity. 

The Department of Music offers four music degree tracks, including BA Music, BM Music Education (Choral Certificate, Instrumental Certificate), BM Jazz Studies (Composition, Performance), BM Performance (Applied Music with Voice Emphasis, Applied Wind Instrument or Percussion), as well as a Music Minor and Music Certificate.

The Department of Theatre and Dance offers five theatre and dance degree tracks, including three highly competitive conservatory-styled BFA programs in Musical Theatre, Acting and Design & Technology. In addition, we offer two liberal arts degrees: the BA Dance major and minor, with coursework in ballet, modern, jazz, tap and theoretical studies, and the BA Drama major, which allows students to study multiple focused areas such as playwriting, dramaturgy, directing, and design.

We also invite applicants to consider our Arts Management program, housed in the Department of Theatre and Dance. These transferrable and useful skills in the Arts Management program are a great addition to a young artist's education.
