A Message from the Dean:
The College of the Arts is a destination of choice for students seeking the highest quality training in the visual and performing arts. We take great pride in our role as a college of regional focus with national impact: locally, the College serves as an academic and cultural resource for the community; nationally, our alumni contribute to the thriving creative economy as artists, educators, performers, and professionals.

We are leaders in arts education, marked by our continuous national accreditation in all four areas – Dance, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts. Part of this rich history of excellence is underscored by our faculty, who encourage the artistic achievement of their students in an academically rigorous environment that also celebrates their individuality.

The college is home to one of the largest theatre programs in the state with an emphasis in technical theatre, providing the industry with numerous workforce-ready theatre technicians. Our Visual Arts complex is home to one of only a few large, comprehensive art programs in the Cal State system, distinguishing itself from other campuses.

At Cal State Fullerton, our motto is “Titans reach higher.” In the College of the Arts, not only do we reach higher, we reach forward to shape the future of the arts in new and innovative ways. For more information about the College of the Arts, please visit: http://www.fullerton.edu/arts/

The School of Music:
It is our mission, and the mission of our entire College of the Arts, to provide an environment that encourages individual achievement and artistic expression. Music is key to what makes us human—an expression of our creative beings. In the School of Music, we daily and collectively engage our creative humanity as performers, composers, researchers, teachers, and students. Together, we collaborate, inspire, discover, reflect, mentor, innovate, and create.

The faculty and students in the School of Music share a deep passion for and common desire to achieve excellence in music. The school offers a wide spectrum of degree programs and options with an overall emphasis in musical performance. The curriculum provides basic preparation for careers in music, music education, or further graduate study, and is designed to provide a balanced education in the many facets of musical experience.

Artist-teachers offer instruction in all aspects of performance; practicing composers and theorists teach courses in theory and composition; active musicologists provide instruction in history and literature; and specialists in music education teach the courses in that field. It is the goal of the department to develop each student’s musical and intellectual potential to the highest level of individual capability.
