UNC School of the Arts

UNC School of the Arts

The University of North Carolina School of the Arts trains talented students from high school to graduate school for professional careers in the performing, visual, and film and television arts. Students are admitted by audition or interview to the Schools of Dance, Design & Production, Drama, Filmmaking, and Music. Students study with resident master teachers who have had successful careers in the arts and who remain active in their professions. The association of gifted students and artist teachers creates a diverse and challenging environment for study and performance. The arts and academic curricula culminate in a high school diploma with arts concentration in dance, drama, music, and visual arts; the arts diploma at the college level in dance, design & production, drama, and music; baccalaureate degrees in dance, design & production, drama, filmmaking, and music; master's degrees in design & production, film music composition, and music; and the Professional Artists Certificate in music. University of North Carolina School of the Arts is committed to equality of educational opportunity.

Established by the 1963 General Assembly as a residential public institution for training in the performing arts. UNCSA enrolls students in middle and high school, undergraduate and graduate programs across the disciplines of Dance, Drama, Design and Production/Visual Arts, Filmmaking and Music. Location: Situated between the two I-40s, at the apex of the Southeast Gateway on sixty-seven acres in southeastern Winston-Salem (population: 194,000), a city with a growing technology and medical sector, nationally recognized for its support of the arts.

Simply the best! These words represent the high standard of excellence of students at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and the quality of the performances they offer at home and on tour. Whether it is playing a symphony, performing Shakespeare, dancing in "The Nutcracker," building a set, or filming on location, being an artist demands a lifetime of dedication. Chosen for their potential as artists, these talented students study with master teachers and guest artists of international renown. Self-discipline must be balanced with the freedom to grow and create. Along with rigorous training and a commitment to their art, students study science and math, languages and literature, humanities and philosophy, to develop the artist as a whole.

The mission of this school is to train talented students for professional careers in the arts. UNCSA graduates go on to dance with American Ballet Theatre; sing at the Metropolitan Opera; act on Broadway and in film; design Emmy and Tony-Award winning shows; and win student Academy Awards. UNCSA alumni represent the very best in the arts today!
