Innovate. Perform. Create. Transform.

The School of the Arts is the creative heart of KU. We’re discovering the next generation of innovators and creative thinkers. Our classes are small, while the opportunities for personal growth, collaboration, professional networking and innovation are huge. You’ll get all the benefits of a smaller, intimate program together with the amazing resources of a major research institution.
