We know you want to get started right away.
Take the first step and explore what’s in store for you here at UD, and enroll today!


Studying the arts is about more than creative expression. Whether you’re a visual artist, musician, performer or future professor, your work is about making an impact — changing the way people think about, interact with and consider the world around them. It’s why each of our programs emphasizes studio-based research, critical evaluation, and excellent oral and written communication skills. Best of all, you’ll enjoy close relationships with professors who are leaders in their fields. But first, you have to enroll.

From conducting in-depth research on the history of art in China, to earning an ADDY Award for graphic design, to studying the role of Catholicism in Latin American protest music, to using theater to help autistic children express themselves, you’ll have countless opportunities to engage in work you’re passionate about and advance your practice.


At UD, learning always extends far beyond the classroom. You could expand your understanding of ancient art by studying in Nepal, get involved with upcoming theater and musical productions, or join one of our performance ensembles. And each year, you’ll get to share your talents as part of our Celebration of the Arts, held at the city’s premier performing arts venue.
