Visual and Performing Arts at JMU
Our visual and performing arts feature traditional training and so much more.
Our graduates shine because they are trained as critical thinkers and problem-solvers. Students tell us that they are attracted to JMU because of our commitment to balancing a rigorous professional program of visual arts study with a liberal arts curriculum renowned for its academic excellence. The same is true for music and other academic disciplines.
To pursue an arts major, you must meet additional application requirements. These include an artistic review, personal interview and letters of recommendation. Music and theater and dance have similar requirements. Details may be found on the respective program Web sites.
It's about expression, knowledge, creativity, and the unique fulfillment that comes with a well-rounded academic adventure.
