Our faculty are practicing designers, artists, and musicians, who are eager to guide students both professionally and academically towards a fulfilling career in the arts or beyond.

The department aims to provide you an understanding of the importance of rigorous practical and intellectual formation in stimulating creative thought and achieving creative expression. We also strive to help you appreciate art and music as significant dimensions of the human experience. Studying the history of the arts brings home the central role that they have played in the development of human thought, both within and outside the Judeo-Christian tradition; practicing the arts encourages students to incorporate creative expression into their wider intellectual and personal development. In forming the human being more completely, the department fulfills a fundamental goal of Catholic education.

The department of Art and Music has both vocal and band scholarships available. Learn more here.
