The College of Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA) at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth fosters innovative opportunities to help students attain a dynamic career in the visual and performing arts.
We’re a community of artists, designers, performers, scholars, and advisors who are dedicated to exploring, making, and learning.
We place emphasis on learning through social and community engagement. We encourage and support cross-disciplinary study and collaborative research. We offer a private art school experience at a public, Tier 1 research university.
