Why study the arts at The University of Texas at Austin?

You are an artist. You observe, question and respond. You perform, create and critique. You think in terms of service, function and fulfillment. You are searching for a close-knit community of artists that will challenge you and collaborate with you. You are looking for those relationships to extend into an urban setting with a thriving arts scene that supports innovative new work.

Consider The University of Texas at Austin, where we are dedicated to the training of professional artists, scholars and future arts educators in a context that emphasizes technology, cultural diversity and community engagement. We advance the arts through research and the creation of new work. Imagine yourself in a place that produces more than 500 music performances, 30 theatre and dance performances and 70 art events annually. Imagine a training program where big meets small—Texas-sized resources delivered to intimate class sizes and a college faculty-to-student ratio of 1:10, rivaling our private and conservatory competitors at a fraction of the cost.
