School of Performing Arts
Music, Cinema, Theatre.
A place for Creativity.
Our programs offer active learning opportunities to work through complex problems and express your ideas, including real-world projects, internships, study abroad, and undergraduate research.
Our faculty maintain active careers in their field, including performance, composition, design, and filmmaking. But every one of them is devoted to teaching students. That’s why we’re here.
Real life experiences
Our students regularly participate in internships and apprenticeships with professional theatre companies, at significant music festivals, and with other non-classroom learning opportunities.
Dynamic performance facilities
We are located in Virginia Tech’s Creativity and Innovation District, with 11 performance spaces within a three-block area. These venues range from the 1,300-seat Moss Arts Center to the 101-seat experimental theatre called Theatre 101.
