The School of the Arts and Architecture at UCLA plays a vital role in the cultural and artistic life of the campus and community. Courses and degree programs in six departments (Architecture and Urban Design, Art, Design | Media Arts, Ethnomusicology, Music, and World Arts and Cultures/Dance) provide students with unparalleled opportunities to learn from faculty members who rank among the most innovative artists, designers, musicians, choreographers, architects, and arts scholars of our time.
Combining opportunities for the hands-on study of creative practice with the academic foundation of the liberal arts, the school offers students the chance to develop an integrated and encompassing understanding of human creativity, the arts, and architecture. The mission is to educate, empower, and inspire the next generation of citizens to serve as cultural and artistic leaders of the twenty-first century.
Also under the School of the Arts and Architecture umbrella is an impressive array of public arts units, including the Center for Art of Performance at UCLA, one of the largest and most diverse performing arts presenters in the nation, and two world-class museums--the UCLA Hammer Museum which focuses on contemporary and emerging artists and the Fowler Museum at UCLA which focuses on the traditional and contemporary arts of Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Oceania.
The school also includes six interdisciplinary research centers--the Art | Global Health Center, Art | Sci Center, CityLab, Experiential Technologies Center, and Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts--and the renowned Murphy Sculpture Garden. All of these programs offer students the opportunity to broaden and deepen their experience of the arts and architecture while at UCLA.
In addition to providing a rich and diverse environment on campus, the school offers students the opportunity to participate in community outreach programs designed around concerts, exhibitions, symposia, and dance productions presented in cooperation with groups throughout the greater Los Angeles area.
