Vision

The College of Creative Arts will advance creativity as a powerful thread to link the visual and performing arts, design, and multimedia across disciplines, bringing the voice and imagination of the arts to all corners of our diverse and global society. By integrating disciplinary expertise with the liberal arts, we will educate the next generation of architects, artists, designers, performers, teachers, and scholars for leadership in their chosen fields and in new and emerging creative industries.

Mission




The College of Creative Arts cultivates and sustains a community that is centered on creativity and where the integration of a liberal education and the arts shapes our identity. Our efforts are realized through degree offerings in the departments of Architecture and Interior Design, Art, Music, and Theatre and through programs of the Miami University Art Museum and Performing Arts Series that enrich academic and cultural experiences across campus and throughout the region.

It is our mission to prepare students for global engagement as practitioners, educators, creators, advocates and patrons of the arts. We foster the development of professional skills and intellectual growth necessary for the pursuit of creative and scholarly inquiry by extending artistic traditions, while embracing a culture of innovation and change.

Through the transformative power of the arts, our departments and programs serve as a window to an ever-changing and diverse world, providing the knowledge and resources for our constituents to engage in their professions and in society as both artists and citizens.
