Discover Your Passion and Talent in the Arts

Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) explores links among Art & Architecture, Music, and Theatre. These connections happen in the classroom, in exhibition, and in performance.

As a VAPA major, you focus on one of the three art areas as your concentration. And at the same time, you engage in the histories and relationships of all three.
