Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) is a contemporary academic field for individuals seeking preparation for a career or continued education in the arts. Unique to Pitt-Greensburg, the VAPA program offers a comprehensive exploration of the connections among Art History, Music, and Theatre Arts - while including a host of opportunities for students to express their individual passion for the arts for academic credit.
Students majoring in this program select one of these disciplines as an area of focused study while taking courses to amass a more liberal knowledge and appreciation of the remaining areas.
Those interested in a variety of careers in the arts - including arts management, stage and film performance, tech theatre/backstage work, film, vocal performance, museum work, education - find the VAPA major an excellent training ground for their careers.
Additionally, the program has been designed so that students may pursue a second major (such as management or psychology) to further focus their education for an exciting future in their specific field of interest.
