Students studying art or music at Assumption have numerous opportunities to explore their creativity and showcase their talents. Performances in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit, onstage in the College'e state-of-the-art Jeanne Y. Curtis Performance Hall, exhibitions on campus and at ArtsWorcester’s city center gallery, and internships at venues ranging from Fitivity to the Worcester Art Museum all demonstrate the artistic aptitude of Assumption students. 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.

You can study the history of the arts and their role 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.

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.
