The Others


Are you the type of person who sees a career in the arts?

Who understands that music, dance, theatre and art are important in relating to other disciplines? Who craves artistic classes as part of your curriculum? You're creative. You're unconventional. But you're so much more. We are your canvas. We are your stage. We are your school. NKU School of the Arts.

In the News

Simply, everything is going on here at the School of the Arts.

Whether we are producing a musical or utilizing our dance classes to collaborate with therapeutic exercise in health sciences, we are on the cutting edge of transdisciplinary studies. Yes, we're hosting concerts, but we're also preparing students to produce better rock n' roll shows. We can teach you to feel comfortable in front of the camera, which could lead to dozens of careers. Here, you will dance, you will sing, and most of all, you will achieve.
