Our vision is to re-imagine creativity for the twenty-first century spanning current and emergent arts disciplines. As UCI’s creative laboratory, the Claire Trevor School of the Arts explores and presents the arts as the essence of human experience and expression, through art forms ranging from the most traditional to the radically new. Our international and distinguished faculty work across a wide variety of art forms, partnering with others across the campus; our nationally ranked programs in art, dance, drama, and music begin with training but end in original invention. The school offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in four departments including Art, Dance, Drama, and Music. Visit their respective websites for more information.
Research and Innovation are integral in all four departments in the school. Arts research, like all research, is a process of systematic investigation in search of new conclusions and new meanings. Arts innovation is the parallel and complementary activity of bringing new methods and modes to life.
