Peter AlexanderWelcome to the College of Visual and Performing Arts website. We are pleased that you are digitally exploring our College and hope that you will have an opportunity to visit us in person. The College consists of four Schools: Music, Theatre, Dance and Art. Within these Schools, we offer nationally accredited programs and an impressive variety of degrees and certificates at the Bachelors through the doctoral level.

With around 1500 students, excellent facilities and an internationally recognized faculty of well over 100 members, the College of Visual and Performing Arts is a vibrant community of artists that produces more than 350 performances, exhibits, lectures and other events. The College is engaged with its community and committed to student success. As the largest and most comprehensive school of the visual and performing arts in North Carolina and one of the largest in the southeast and the nation, it has the capacity to provide experiences that other institutions cannot. We have a strong record of helping students develop their craft and the necessary knowledge to succeed in the highly competitive world of the arts. Because we are part of a large research university, a full range of interdisciplinary and collaborative opportunities are close at hand.

Should you have questions as you examine our website, please contact us. We would be happy to welcome you to campus at any time.
