School of Fine Arts
The School of Fine Arts cultivates and sustains a community that is centered on creativity, where the integration of a liberal education and the arts shapes our identity. Our efforts are realized through degree offerings in the departments of Architecture + Interior Design, Art, Music, and Theatre and through programs of the Miami University Art Museum and Performing Arts Series that enrich academic and cultural experiences across campus and throughout the region. It is our mission to prepare students for global engagement as practitioners, educators, creators, advocates and patrons of the arts. We foster the development of professional skills and intellectual growth necessary for the pursuit of creative and scholarly inquiry by extending artistic traditions, while embracing a culture of innovation and change.
